Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Be a part of the action!
As we come to the end of another week, we hope that yours has been an awesome one! To all our volunteers that are helping to make this term a great one, we send a big thank you. If you feel like you’re missing out on the volunteer action, then read on for more details about our volunteer opportunities.
Event volunteers needed!
On Wednesday 29th May 2019, we’re running a workshop at the Rio Tinto offices in London from 10am to 4pm. We still need volunteers, workshop facilitators and event coordinators for this workshop. Please let me know if you’re available to help on the day and I’ll get in touch to share more details with you.
Quick and easy volunteer opportunities
If you want to volunteer this term but you just don’t have the time to commit to tutoring or mentoring, then we have some great opportunities for you! From guest blogging to helping out at events, there are many other ways to volunteer with us. Find out more by reading this blog and if you find a way that best suits you, please feel free to get in touch with me.
The Fight for Social Mobility
The Social Mobility Commission released its annual State of the Nation report recently. According to the report, the gap in attainment between pupils from low-income backgrounds and their peers resulted in only 16% of this group getting the equivalent of two A Levels, compared with 39% of other pupils. This shows that a lot more needs to be done to support pupils from low-income backgrounds. If you would like to volunteer to help these pupils get the support they need, please get in touch with me.
