Friends of GT Scholars Volunteers

Happy Friday! How are you? I hope well and that you’ve had a great week so far? Since we’re all probably planning to spend more time at home for a while,  I was looking for something fun to do. (There’s only so much Netflix one can watch!) So I surfed the internet for some inspiration and I came across EarthCam and WebcamTaxi where you can watch live HD video feeds of different countries, iconic landmarks and even wildlife! Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?

We’re creating some new Online courses for young people!
Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be a bunch of busy bees creating online courses for young people. Not only will it allow more young people to join our courses but it will also allow us to reach out to young people living outside of London. The online workshop will cover a range of topics including growth mindset, study skills, applying to university, Oxbridge, choosing a career and time management. If you’d like to get involved in helping us, please get in touch

Online Parent information sessions!
We’re doing our next parent information session a little bit differently this time. We’ll be hosting our next parent information session online.  We’re looking for 3-4 volunteers who would like to join our virtual panel of speakers and share their volunteer experience with parents interested in joining the programme next term. This will be a 10-minute video insert during the session. Please let me know if you’d like to join the panel.

Are you available to tutor or mentor next term!
We’re almost at the end of the term with less than 4 weeks left! Thanks to everyone who volunteered this term! You guys are doing a great job! With the new term just around the corner, I’d like to find out if you would be available to volunteer next term. Online volunteer tutors schedule weekly 1-hr sessions and mentors divide their sessions up into monthly 2-hour or bi-weekly 1-hr sessions. If you would like to sign up as an online volunteer tutor or mentor for the next 12-week term starting 20th April, please contact me

Have a lovely weekend!

The Ready, Set, Go acing your exams workshop will take place next Saturday 16th February at Bell House from 10am-4pm and is open for young people aged 12-16.

We’d love to set up a meeting to discuss how your company or university can help us make a difference.
