Friends of GT Scholars – Countdown to the new term!

Friends of GT Scholars – Countdown to the new term!

Happy Spring! Hope you had a great week? I can’t believe it’s Friday already, and we’re almost a quarter of the way through 2021 – It’s as if the year is moving faster than normal! Over here, we’re in countdown mode to the new term, and it looks like we’re going to have a lot more scholars joining us, so we’re definitely in need of more volunteer tutors and mentors. If you’re looking for an online volunteer opportunity, read on to find out more!

Volunteer online as a mentor!
Are you thinking about joining our volunteering team as an online mentor? The new term will start in early April, and we’re keen for more volunteer mentors to join our mentoring programme! To volunteer as a mentor, you’ll have to be available to support a young person for two hours a month. If you’re interested to know more about this volunteering opportunity, please get in touch with me!

Are you an English boffin?
We’ve already started receiving applications from young people to join our online tutoring programmes, starting from Monday 12th April. A lot of young people have applied to say that they need help with English. We’d love to help as many young people as possible, but we need more English tutors. Would you be available to volunteer for 1-hour a week next term? Please drop me a quick email if you can.

Recommend a friend!
We’re always up for expanding our volunteer network and we love to meet talented professionals who would like to help us improve social mobility for young people. Do you have a friend who might be interested in working with young people and getting involved with our tutor and mentoring opportunities? You can share this link with them if they would like to sign up as a volunteer.

Have a spectacular weekend!
