Friends of GT Scholars – It’s the year to volunteer!

Happy 2021!! We’re back in full swing and really hope that you’ve had a relaxing festive season! Even though our new year has started in lockdown, we’re still excited about upcoming online opportunities to support young people during their virtual learning experience. We definitely can’t do it without your help, so if you’re looking for ways to make a difference this year, have a quick look at what’s in the pipeline at GT Scholars in the new term!

Tutoring and mentoring opportunities for the new term!
The new term has started and will run from January to March. During the next two weeks, we’ll be matching our scholars with volunteers. Thank you to everyone who’s confirmed their availability so far, we’ll be in touch soon regarding a match. If you’re interested to volunteer as a mentor for two hours a month, or as a tutor for 1 hour a week, please let me know. We look forward to hearing from you!

Fancy being a speaker at our Career Summit day?
Our first Online Careers Summit day is coming up at the end of February! In previous years our career days have truly inspired young people. It opens a world of opportunity to them, and so, we’re really looking forward to this event and hearing our volunteers’ career stories. Have you signed up to be a guest speaker yet? If you would like to be a guest speaker, please fill in this short form.

Workshop facilitator roles available!
We’re focused on bringing opportunities online for young people to continue to learn and grow whilst being at home, especially now in the light of school closures. We’d love to hear from more professionals interested in part-time workshop facilitating roles with us. If you have previous experience in facilitating workshops and have spare time to get involved,  please feel free to get in touch.

Have a fantastic weekend!
