Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Volunteer at our Dragon’s Den Challenge!

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and that you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend. But before the weekend starts I’d like to share a few things with you in this week’s newsletter.

Can you help us at our next event?
We have a few workshops coming up in the next couple of weeks. They will take place on Saturdays and will run from 10am to 4pm. We need volunteers that can help out at our events taking place on the 24th of November as well as the 8th and 15th of December. You do not have to be available for the duration of the event and can only volunteer for a few hours if need be. If you would like to help at this event please let us know by contacting us here. I look forward to hearing from you!

Free resources!
If you are planning your next tutoring or mentoring session and looking for some fresh ideas you might find these websites useful. This website can help mentors plan their sessions and provide a few challenges and exercises for their mentees. Please remember to use these worksheets as guidance and not as the main point of conversation. Tutors can find free teaching resources by visiting the BBC Bitesize website which has plenty of amazing resources available to keep your lessons fresh! Join our active volunteers’ support group to find out more about this new exciting virtual gathering!

Speed volunteering opportunities
If you run a tight schedule but would still like to ‘’pay it forward’’ without the long-term commitment of becoming a volunteer tutor or mentor, we have a few volunteer opportunities for you to consider. If you enjoy writing you can be a guest blogger and write an article for our blog or perhaps you could apply to be a volunteer ambassador and connect us with a company that could help us with venue space or funding. Please feel free to contact us to set up a phone meeting to discuss the 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.
