Friends of GT Scholars – A Spotlight Interview that will inspire!

[Dramatic Intro Music] It’s summer in England, and here we have the avid newsletter reader, in his most natural habitat. At any moment now, this reader will move into a slightly different behavioural territory, commonly referred to as… the weekend. [Music stops abruptly]… Okay, I’ll cut it out now – It’s Sir David Attenborough 95th birthday tomorrow! I just had to give a quick tribute to him! I hope you’ll have a magnificent weekend, but before we leap into it, here’s this week’s newsletter!

Spotlight Interview with one of our mentors, Nadeem!
Recently we had the pleasure to interview one of our amazing volunteer mentors, Nadeem. During this interview, he gave a great insight into his volunteering experience. One key message he shares is that the human potential is only limited by imagination and by the people around the individual, and that as a mentor, one of the fundamental roles you can play is to help open your mentee’s imagination! You can read the rest of this inspiring spotlight interview here!

Design an online course for young people!
Teaching is an art, and passing on knowledge is a gift! If you’re looking for an opportunity to reconnect with your inner teacher and support young people, look no further! Our virtual course creation opportunity might be the right fit for you. As a course creator, you will help us to expand our courses library for our Online Learning Hub. Sounds interesting? I’d love to find out what you have in mind. Just send me a quick email, and I’ll be in touch!

Are you InQUIZitive?
This fun quiz has been created just for our volunteers! It will only take 2 minutes, and it’s filled with fun gifs and random questions (It’s eerily accurate though). After completing the quiz, you’ll find out what your Volunteer Persona is. You might even discover a hidden talent! Feel free to let us know what your result was and if you feel we got it right! You can follow this link to fill in the quiz!

Have a fantastic weekend!
