Friends of GT Scholars – Free resource + MicroVolunteering opportunities!

Welcoming Friday with open arms!! Did you have a good week? Over here, we’ve been getting things ready to host our very first Online Careers Day! We look forward to bringing this event to the young people and their parents, and we’re also getting quite excited about hearing the career stories of our speakers! If you’re looking to get involved with more volunteering opportunities, have a quick look at today’s newsletter!

Become a Workshop Facilitator for GT Scholars 
We’re bringing more learning opportunities to young people online, and as our workshops & courses grow, so does our need for workshop facilitators. If you have previous professional experience in facilitating workshops and would like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you to give you more information about volunteering as a workshop facilitator! You can get in touch with me by sending a quick email here!

Could you support the Events team?
As you may already know, the Careers Day will be running online this year, on Saturday 27th February. Most of the Q&A sessions will be for 90 minutes only, so if you are available on this day, please let me know! Thank you so much to everyone that has signed up to be a speaker – I’ll be sending out more information soon! We’re also looking for volunteers who can support behind the scenes and help with running the online event! You’ll be reviewing the questions from young people, organising online poll results and directing questions to the speakers on different panels. Please let me know if you’d like to be part of the events team by sending an email here.

Apprenticeships for Young People!
We’re excited to share our latest free resource with you – 42 Top Apprenticeship Programmes for Young People in the UK. We’ve created this list to help young people discover all the great opportunities and alternatives to universities. If this resource is relevant to your tutee or mentee, or you perhaps know a parent or young person who would love to get a copy of this free resource, please feel free to share this link with them!

Have a wonderful weekend!
