Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Could you help raise the aspirations of young people living in care?

Happy Friday! I hope you’re having a good day so far and that you are looking forward to the weekend. Here’s a couple of things I would like to share with you before the weekend begins.

Volunteer as part of the Raising Aspirations Programme!
Did you know that young people living in care are statistically less likely to pursue further education or training after school with just 7% attending university? From January 2019, we will be running the Raising Aspirations Programme, working with Looked After Children between the ages of 13-15 living in the London boroughs of Greenwich and Bromley, giving them a chance to learn key skills, gain mentorship and visit top universities and corporations in London. If you would be interested in volunteering as part of this programme, please get in touch and we’ll share more details on how to get involved!

Volunteer Meetup – Thursday 13th December!
Our next Volunteer Meetup will be on Thursday 13th December from 7-9pm and we hope that you can join us! Our Volunteer Meetups are a great place for our volunteers, trustees and workshop facilitators to meet and mingle! We’ll also be sharing some important updates for the year. If you’re a new volunteer, you are welcome to join us for the meetup. We will email further details in the next few days. Please join our Meetup group here to stay updated with the Meetup details.

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.
