Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Are you available Saturday 14th July?!

Tomorrow is World Chocolate Day! It is a great way to start to the weekend with the perfect excuse to indulge in some sweet cocoa delight. But before the weekend officially starts we would like to share a few things with you.

Volunteer at The Maths Marathon!
If you love maths and would like to support young people in developing their math skills, this is the perfect event for you to volunteer at. The Maths Marathon will take place at Goldsmiths University on Saturday 14th July 2018. Please  contact us for more information about the event and how to volunteer.

Could you join us next term as a tutor?
The summer holidays are only three weeks away but it also means that the new academic year is around the corner. We have received a lot of interest from scholars wanting to join our academic programme and we are hoping to have matched all scholars with tutors within the first two weeks of the term. Could you volunteer your time to tutor for one hour a week and make a difference in a young person’s life? If so, please feel free to contact us for more information.

What are the qualities of a good mentor?
Mentoring is more than just giving advice and guidance. A mentor is someone who has certain qualities and this normally includes a special combination of knowledge, adaptability, experience and wisdom. This blog post serves for a great read and lists 7 personal qualities of a good mentor.

GT Scholars is a not-for-profit social enterprise and registered charity. Our after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment programmes are designed to help young people aged 11-18 achieve their academic and career aspirations. Contact us to find out how you can join us a volunteer tutor or mentor and make a difference in young people’s lives.
