Friends of GT Scholars Volunteers

Happy Friday! The week has finally come to an end and it’s time to get ready for the weekend. I hope you have some exciting plans lined up or perhaps you’re getting ready for a well-deserved summer holiday? But before the week ends, I’d just like five minutes of your time to share a few things with you. 

It’s been a great term!
The end of term is here and we’ve been receiving really good feedback from our scholars and parents. We would like to thank everyone for their dedication and hard work and for making this term a successful one. Your support is valued and doesn’t go unnoticed. We’ve got a bit of time before the next term starts, but if you’re thinking about volunteering as a tutor or mentor in the new academic year, starting in September, please let me know by sending a quick email.

Short term volunteer opportunities!
We also have some great one-off volunteer opportunities, that won’t take up too much of your time, that you to get involved with over the summer. Some of these include writing a guest blog, sharing our page on social media platforms, participating in our spotlight series and suggesting potential venues for our meetups and workshops. If you’re interested in getting involved, please send me a quick email and I’ll give you a call to fill you in on the details.

In The Know Parents What's new?

Did you know that LinkedIn has identified creativity and collaboration as two of the most sought-after soft skills by companies? Young people can benefit from learning these skills from a young age, so this week we bring you three activities which are centred around creativity, collaboration and careers!

Get Creative!
The Design Museum runs the Young Creatives programme for young people aged 14-19 years old. They have monthly meetings where young people work together as a team on design-based projects. They will get to take part in 2D and 3D design, join in workshops with designers and members of the museum team, and gain career insights. To find out more about how you can join, click here.

Learn about Careers!
Kidzania’s career fair will be taking place on Wednesday 23rd January and Thursday 24th January. Young people aged between 10 and 14 can participate in a series of workshops which encourage them to work as a team and develop their communication and problem-solving skills. They get to do all this whilst learning about different careers! Find out more here.

Vlog like a pro!
Young people have the chance to participate in MediaTrust’s Vlogging training on Monday 28th January. This free workshop, taking place at Google Academy London, is suitable for young people aged 16 and above. Lessons for the day include video editing, presentation skills and confidence building. Book your tickets here.
