Friends of GT Scholars – Worksheets to inspire your mentoring sessions!

Ahh… Friday my old friend!! Has this week also gone by quickly for you?  Lockdown is being eased, and the question on everyone’s lips is what the new normal will look like? Do you have a post lockdown bucket list? One thing that is definitely on my list, is to go to a drive-in live music concert! The show must go on! And on that note, here’s this week’s newsletter!

Need some more inspiration for your mentoring sessions?
We’ve updated our mentoring worksheets and also added some new worksheets to the mix. The new worksheets cover in-depth topics like understanding your strengths, understanding different personalities and getting revision right. I’ll be sending the new link to all volunteer mentors in the next couple of days. If you need it before then, please feel free to get in touch by sending a quick email and I’ll share the worksheets with you.

Nominate a scholar for the youth advisory board!
The Youth Board is a brilliant opportunity for young people aged between 13 and 17, to have an impact on GT Scholars and make a difference in many young people’s lives! We’ve had applications from different young people over the past few days but we’re keen to see a few more girls joining us! If you have tutored or mentored a young person in the last year and you would like to recommend someone who would be a good fit for our Youth Board, please get in touch!

Quick and easy volunteer opportunities!
If you are eager to volunteer with us but just don’t have the time to commit to being a volunteer tutor or mentor, then this latest blog post is for you. These volunteer opportunities are short-term and you can still help make a difference.  Have a look at our range of exciting volunteer roles for you to consider in the meantime. To find out more about these opportunities, read the full post here.

Have a fantastic weekend!
