Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Join us for our volunteer Meetup!

Good Morning! I hope you had a great week and that your Friday will launch you into a beautiful weekend. But before the weekend kicks off I’d like to share a few things with you.

Volunteer Meetup
Join us for our Volunteer Meetup on Thursday evening the 13th of December from 7pm to 9pm and get a chance to meet fellow volunteers and workshop facilitators. You will receive an invitation with all the details shortly. In the meantime, pencil the date in your diary and join our Meetup group to stay up to date with all the details.

Have you heard our alumni’s story?
The Guardian recently published a story about one of our alumni, Micheal Olorode who opened up about the challenges he faces having to work 38 hours a week in order to support his studies. The fourth-year Biomedical student shares his incredible story and also talks about how being on the GT Scholars programme has helped him stay motivated and determined to reach his goals. You can read the full article here. In response, someone has also started a GoFundMe campaign to help Micheal with fees for the final part of his degree course.

Volunteer in Term 2
Term 2 is fast approaching and will run from January to April 2019. In January we will also launch the Head Start Programme for young people in Years 7 & 8. If you are available to volunteer as a tutor or mentor in Term 2 please let us know by contacting us here and we will get in touch with you once we start the scholar matching process in December.

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.
