Happy Friday! I hope you had a fantastic week? The new term will officially kick off on Monday, and we’re very excited to welcome our new scholars and continuing scholars to the tutoring and mentoring programmes. A big shout out to all the volunteers who signed up to tutor or mentor this term, and a warm welcome to all of our new volunteers about to start their very first term with us – Let’s jump into this week’s newsletter!
Spotlight with one of our scholars – Xavier
We’re very pleased to share our latest spotlight interview blog with you! In this interview, Xavier tells us more about his interest and passion for history and classical civilisations. Xavier also says “The Bright Ambitions programme offered me many different opportunities that I would never have had access to.” If you have a few minutes to spare and would like to read something inspirational, have a quick look at the blog here!
Bright Ambitions kicking off next week!
The new term for the Bright Ambitions programme will officially begin on Monday 28th of September. Thanks again to all our volunteers volunteering this term! You can still sign up to volunteer with us as our last intake of scholars will start on the 5th of October. If you want to volunteer as a tutor for 1-hr a week, or mentor for 2-hrs a month, and help a young person to improve their grades, leadership skills and achieve their academic & career goals, please get in touch with me.
