Friends of GT Scholars – Upcoming Online Volunteering Opportunities!

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great day so far! We’ve been preparing for the new term coming up after Easter. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to tutor or mentor next term. If you’d like to volunteer next term, there’s still time to get in touch. This week I’d like to share some great 1-to-1 volunteering opportunities that you can get involved with to help young people get a headstart!

Have you checked out our LinkedIn thank you video?
Can you believe that 2 weeks have already gone by since our first online careers day? We didn’t expect to have so many young people & parents register for the careers day and we received over 10,000 registrations in just 3 weeks! Thanks again to our incredible volunteers that took the time out of their day to support parents and young people at the careers day! Follow this link to watch the video, and please feel free to like or share!

We need volunteer Mentors! Could you help?
We’re looking for volunteer mentors to provide online 1-to-1 mentoring support to young people between the age of 14-16. As a mentor, you’ll help guide your mentee as they plan for their future. You’ll also help them discover & explore the different options available to them. As a volunteer mentor, you’ll spend 2 hours a month working with your mentee. The new term will start in April and will run for 12 weeks. If you would like to find out more, please let me know.

Exciting course creation opportunity!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been developing more personal development online courses with the aim of reaching young people across London and beyond! Some of our upcoming workshops & masterclasses will cover topics such as How to develop a growth mindset, How to boost your study skills, How to write an outstanding personal statement & How to get into Oxbridge. If you’d like to get involved in co-creating an online course, or would like to present a masterclass or webinar for parents or young people, hit reply, and I’ll be in touch with you soon.

Have a terrific weekend!
