Friends of GT Scholars – Volunteer Opportunities to look forward to!

Happy Friday! It’s been a short work week and I must say that a four day work week is something I could get used to! Did you know that Finland’s prime minister is actually playing around with this idea? And thanks to Google who’s also celebrating their 22nd birthday today, I can amuse you with these odd bits of information, they make great conversation starters by the way! Anyway, that’s enough chit chat from me! Here’s this week’s newsletter…

Would you like to volunteer as a tutor or mentor?
The new term is only a few weeks away and we’re really looking forward to it! Thanks to everyone who got in touch to confirm their availability! I’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in volunteering during the next 12-week cycle starting mid-September. Volunteer mentors support their mentee for 6hrs in a term and volunteer tutors support their tutee for 12hrs in a term. If you’d like to find out more, please feel free to drop me a quick email!

Would you like to be part of the Global Teenpreneur action?
Thanks to everyone who’s reached out about getting involved with this programme! I’ll be in touch with you soon. The challenge is on! Many young people are already hard at work completing their first challenge! This 4-month programme will include 21 masterclasses on topics such as leadership skills, pitching & presentation skills, campaign management, and video animation! We’re looking for talented facilitators to run workshops and professionals to sit on the panel of judges. Sounds like fun? Please get in touch

Can you help us share our new programme with your network
Have you taken some time to have a look at our new programme the Global Teenpreneur Challenge? To say the least, the word is spreading like a wildfire and applications are streaming in! If you would like to know more about this programme for business savvy teens, or you would like to share this with a family member, friend, parent, or young person, make sure to follow this link to the Global Teenpreneur website!

And as a last note, please note that there will be some changes to the website this weekend which means that the website and emails may be down for a few hours – but we will be up and running on Monday 7 September 2020.

Have a terrific weekend!
