Friends of GT Scholars – Will you be coming to our Volunteer Xmas Meetup?

Happy Friday! How’s your week been so far? There are only a few days left to go before we move into Tier 2. At last! I’m sure we’re all over being under house arrest by now! Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Just enough time to get on with some last minute Xmas shopping! Before we get ready to set off, take a few minutes to read more about a couple of volunteer opportunities to get involved with!

Would you like to share your skills with young people?
#DayofCode was a huge success, and we’d like to give special thanks to Amhed & Rhys, who helped us with putting the workshop content together and facilitating the workshop. We really appreciated all your help and guidance! If you have any expertise or skills that you would like to share with young people, we would be happy to meet with you to discuss this! Whether you only want to help with content creation, or also get involved with facilitating the workshop we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch, and we can set up a time to chat!

Come meet us at our Volunteer Xmas Meetup!
We’re getting super excited about our Xmas meetup that’s only a few weeks away! I’m particularly curious and excited about what the young people have planned for the evening. The online meetup will be hosted via Zoom, on Thursday 17th December from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. It will be great if you can make it, so please let us know before the 7th of December so that we can wrap up a few last things on our side. You can register your attendance by following this link. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!

Would you like to volunteer as a tutor or mentor next term?
It’s almost the end of term, and with that, the new term is slowly creeping closer. Applications for our online tutoring and mentoring programmes for next term intake are now open. The new term will run from the 4th of January till the 2nd of March 2021. If you’d like to volunteer, you can expect to be matched with a scholar between the 4th – 18th of January, depending on the intake period of scholars. If you would like to volunteer as a tutor for one hour a week, or as a mentor for two hours a month, please let me know.

Have a beautiful weekend!
