Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Would you be able to help at #GirlMeetsCode?

Good Morning! We hope you’ve had a great week so far and that the upcoming weekend will be a pleasant one! Here is a couple of things we would like to share with you before the weekend break.

Help needed for tomorrow’s event!
We are in need of two more volunteers to help at tomorrow’s event from 9:30am to 12:30pm. The #GirlMeetsCode event will focus on introducing girls aged 11-16 to the world of coding. Event volunteers will help with the initial registration process and support the scholars during the workshop. You don’t have to know anything about coding to help out! We’ve got lunch sorted and we’ll reimburse any travel expenses up to £12 for the day. Please let us know if you are interested and we will get in touch to go through the final details.

Help us reach more volunteers
We are all connected in some way (6 degrees of separation is pretty much becoming 3 degrees) and that’s why word of mouth is such a powerful tool! You can help us reach more volunteers by connecting us with your company or community group. We will often set up a date to speak to your group and do a short pitch about how they can volunteer with us. If you can help us get connected contact us by confirming the best number and time to reach you on and we’ll get in touch.

Learn a skill and volunteer
With SkillsxChange you can learn awesome new photography skills. You can refine your skills by attending a photography or videography course with SkillsxChange and helping us capture great photos of our enrichment and skill-building events. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone that enjoys photography and wants to learn for free. Please feel free to contact us for more information about this role.
