Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Stories of success and upcoming opportunities!

We’ve had a busy week at GT Scholars, but we are pleased to tell you that the Ready, Set, Go workshop was a resounding success. Thank you for helping to make it a success! Read on for more stories of success, details about upcoming workshops, and tips for volunteer mentors.

Listen to one of our spotlight interviews
As part of our scholar spotlight series, we recently interviewed a parent of one of the scholars on our Bright Ambitions programme. We are always keen to receive feedback from everyone who is involved in our programmes. This helps to understand our impact so we can make sure that we are making a significant difference in the lives of our scholars. You can listen to the full interview here.

Volunteers and facilitators needed at upcoming workshops
There are still a few workshops coming up this term that you can be a part of. We are looking for volunteers, workshop facilitators and event coordinators to help on Saturday the 16th and 30th of March, and Monday and Tuesday the 15th and 16th of April. All events will run from 10am to 4pm. Please contact us if you’re available to help on any of these dates.
