Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – A slightly later edition of Friends of GT Scholars!

I hope you had a great week and hope you’re looking forward to a fun-filled weekend. We’ve been busy preparing for our new intake which explains why you’re receiving a much much later edition of ‘Friends of GT scholars’ this week!

To tutor or mentor? That is the question!
Thanks to the Guardian article from a couple of weeks ago, we received a huge amount of applications for young people wanting to join us next term! This is great news but it has also meant that we’ve been working hard to respond to requests and working slightly longer hours over the past couple of weeks! (We’ve even had to call on some old colleagues to come back for a few weeks to help out – Huge shout out to Kelen!)

Anyways, to the point – We’re looking for volunteer tutors and mentors to join us next term. We’d love to hear from you if you can volunteer for one hour a week giving online one-to-one tutoring sessions in Maths or English. Alternatively, you can volunteer for two hours a month mentoring a young person. If you’re passionate about social mobility and would like to help young people reach their goals and raise their aspirations, then please get in touch!

Update on the Volunteer Meetup
With our second term fast approaching and the huge amount of interest received for our programmes, we’ve had to focus our attention on preparing for the new term and we’ve decided to postpone the Volunteer Meetup until early 2019. Thankfully 2019 is not too far away! We’ll send further details in the new year.

Do you know someone who would like to volunteer?
And finally, if you know of someone in particular who would make a great volunteer tutor or mentor you can refer them to our contact page. Alternatively, you can get in touch with us and we’ll send you some material that you can forward to friends and colleagues.

GT Scholars is a not-for-profit social enterprise and registered charity. Our after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment programme is designed to help young people aged 11-18 achieve their academic and career aspirations. Visit our website if you’d like to know more about the GT Scholars Programme and how you can make a significant difference in young people’s lives.
