Are you available to volunteer at #GirlMeetsCode

Happy Friday! We hope you had a great week and that you have some exciting plans lined up for the weekend! Before the weekend officially starts, we would like to tell you about a few volunteer opportunities.

Event volunteers needed!
We are looking for volunteers to support us at our next event. The #GirlMeetsCode workshop will introduce girls aged 11-16 to the world of coding and will take place on Saturday the 20th of October from 10am-4pm at Launch 22 at Old Street. If you are available to help at this event please get in touch with us for more information about the workshop and how to volunteer.

Volunteer as a guest blogger
Another way to volunteer with us is to contribute to our blog. The blog is a great way to share your ideas with young people and their parents. It’s also a great way to share your thoughts about your industry or career and any lessons you’ve learned that can help our scholars. Have a look at this previous blog entry from one of our volunteers to get an idea of the blogging style.  If you don’t have time to write a blog but would still like to contribute, please send me an email and I’d be more than happy to co-write the blog with you!

Spotlight on Volunteers
Our Volunteer Spotlight interview series is our way of highlighting the amazing things that our volunteers do and sharing more about their talent, dedication and motivation for volunteering. If you’ve volunteered as a tutor, mentor or helped out at one or more of our events in the past year, we’d love to schedule an interview with you to find out more about your volunteering journey. I will be doing a round of phone calls to find our next set of volunteers for the spotlight series but please feel free to email if you’d like to get involved.

GT Scholars is a not-for-profit social enterprise and registered charity. Our after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment programme is designed to help young people aged 11-18 achieve their academic and career aspirations. Visit our website if you’d like to know more about the GT Scholars Programme and how you can make a significant difference in young people’s lives.
