Friends of GT Scholars – An interview with one of our scholars!

Friends of GT Scholars – An interview with one of our scholars!

What's new? Young people

And Friday rolls over once again! I hope you’re having a good day so far? The last couple of weeks we had a lot of fun interviewing volunteers, parents and scholars and in this week’s newsletter, I’d like to share a scholar spotlight with you. Also, I’d like to share more details about our Ambassador’s network we’re launching.

Spotlight on one of our young scholars – Ladan
I recently had the chance to speak to one of our scholars who was on the Bright Ambitions programme throughout the last academic year. Ladan is a  bright young lady with a great future ahead of her. Her goal this term was to move up to higher-level Maths set which she was able to achieve with the support of her volunteer tutor and mentor.  Read her full interview by following this link.

We’re launching an Ambassador’s network for our volunteers!
We’re looking for volunteers to become part of a network of ambassadors who are committed to helping us increase our reach through fundraising and representing GT Scholars at various internal and external events, forming new relationships and expanding our network of support. This role would suit someone who is naturally enterprising and would like to help raise the profile of GT Scholars. Click here for more information and to understand more about this volunteer opportunity.

Do you have a friend who would like to volunteer with us?
We’re getting closer to the start of a new academic year! Next term, we’re hoping to work with even more young people and we can only do this with your support! Over the next few weeks, we’re hoping to recruit more volunteers – just like you! If you know of someone who will make a great volunteer tutor or mentor, please forward this email to them and ask them to fill in this short form. We’ll then get in touch with them to guide them through the application process and have them ready to volunteer when the new term starts.

Have an awesome weekend!
