Friends of GT Scholars – Will you be coming to the Volunteer Meet up?! 🎄😊

Happy December! Since it’s International Volunteer Day tomorrow, I’d like to say a huge thank you to you! The impact that GT Scholars makes in young people’s lives has been phenomenal and this is hugely because of volunteers like you! I’d also like to invite you to the upcoming volunteer meetup, where we will celebrate the impact GT Scholars volunteers made in the lives of our scholars! Have a look at this week’s newsletter to find out how you can register your attendance for the meetup!

Will you be joining us for the Xmas Celebration?
This year our annual volunteer meetup will be online. Thanks to everyone who has RSVP’d – we’re really looking forward to seeing you! If you’ve not registered your attendance yet, check your diary, and if possible, join us for a fun virtual evening! Some of our young people will also be joining us, and they’ve got some exciting things lined up for the evening! The meetup will take place on Thursday 17th December from 6-7.30pm. If you can make it, be sure to register your attendance!

Speakers for the online Careers Summit!
The young people we work with are always eager to learn more about different career options available to them, especially careers within the Creative sector, Tech industry, Financial sector and Business sector. We’ll be running a free online Careers Summit and we’re looking for volunteer speakers to inspire young people by sharing their career success stories, and the different options available to young people. We’d love to hear from you, especially if you’re working in a career field that is under-represented by young people from diverse backgrounds. The first day of the summit will be on Tuesday 16th February, with additional days in May and October 2021. Please book a time in my calendar if you’d like to get involved, so can fill you in on the details.

Would you like to volunteer next term?
Thanks so much to everyone who’s already confirmed their availability to volunteer next term, we really appreciate it! Applications are still open and the new term will start early January and run till the beginning of March 2021. You can volunteer as a mentor for two hours a month, or volunteer as a tutor for 1 hour a week. If you’re interested to volunteer next term or know someone who might be interested and would like to find out more about our online mentoring and tutoring programmes, please feel free to send me a quick email!
