Friends of GT Scholars – Could you share your volunteer experience with parents?

Friends of GT Scholars – Could you share your volunteer experience with parents?

Wow, it feels like this week just flew by! I hope your week has been great so far? First things first, we’d like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to sit on our judging panel at the Dragon’s Den Challenge last week, and very special thank you to Moe Hashimi and 42 Acres for their support! You guys rock! Before the weekend starts, I’d like to remind you of a few upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.

Could you be a speaker at our parent information session?
Another great way to volunteer is to be a speaker at one of our information sessions. As a speaker you’ll be sharing your volunteer experience with parents who are interested in enrolling their child in the Bright Ambitions Programme There will be two sessions on Saturday 14th December – the first one will be from 3:00pm – 4:30pm and the second one will be from 5:00pm. If you’ve volunteered as a tutor or mentor in the past year and would like to join our panel, please let me know and I’ll get in touch with more details.

Will we see you at the next Volunteer Meetup?
Our next Volunteer Meetup is less than two weeks away and the RSVP’s are coming in!  All Friends of GT Scholars are welcome! This includes current volunteers, volunteer applicants and anyone that is interested in volunteering with young people, so please feel free to invite your friends and colleagues. If you’d like to join us on Wednesday 11th December from 6:30pm to 9pm at Airspace, London W1D 2DR, click here to register your attendance. We look forward to seeing you there!

Do you want to know more about the Future Leaders Programme?
The Future Leaders programme is a new programme sponsored by the Mayor of London and will start in January and run until July 2020. This programme will focus on young boys in London at risk of exclusion, between the ages of 12-14. Young boys joining the programme have been identified as having high aspirations but also struggling with some challenging issues in their personal lives. We’re looking for volunteer mentors to deliver monthly face-to-face mentoring sessions in London. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in becoming a mentor.
