Friends of GT Scholars – Jingle and mingle at the Christmas Meetup! 🎄😊

Happy Christmas Jumper Day 2020! I hope you had a fantastic week? With all the eating I’ve been doing over lockdown, I wonder if my Christmas jumper still fits… Have you taken out your jumper yet? We’re really getting into the festive groove here and looking forward to our Christmas Meetup next Thursday. Will you be joining us? Christmas jumpers are not required!!😊🎄

Get ready for our Christmas meetup!
Come and support our scholars who will also be joining us for some fun activities. One of the young people will treat us to a lovely guitar tune, and another young person will be giving a Rubik’s cube demonstration!! Also in the line up is a quiz run by our scholars! Just to remind you of the details, the meetup will be online on Thursday 17th December from 6-7.30pm. It would be great to have you there supporting the young people with us! If you can make it, please RSVP using this link.

Could you speak at our Careers Day next year?
We’ll be running a free online Careers Summit in February 2020 and we’re looking for volunteer speakers to inspire young people by sharing their career success stories. If you have professional work experience in Tech, Finance or the Business sector, and would like to share more information with the young people and their parents, we’d love to hear from you! You can get involved by replying to this email or fill in this short form with your photo and bio.

New year, new volunteering opportunities!
Thanks so much for everyone who confirmed their availability to start the new year volunteering with us! We’re looking forward to finding you a match! You can choose between volunteering as a mentor for two hours a month, or volunteering as a tutor for 1 hour a week during the new term, starting early January running until March. If you’re looking for something that requires a lesser time commitment, you can also get involved with our Career Summit in February. For more information on volunteering with us, please get in touch!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Just a reminder that we’ll be closed for a Christmas & New Year break from Monday 21st December to Friday 1st January. We’ll be back in the office on Monday 4th January 2021. Please get in touch if you need to chat with us before then.
