Brightside Connections - Our Alumni Network

Our support for young people at key points in their lives doesn’t end when a mentoring project finishes. Brightside Connections is our network for former mentees, which provides further personalised support from our dedicated volunteers and information resources on education and careers. It’s also a thriving community where members can interact online to share their experiences and tips on things like applying for courses or finding a job, and meet face-to-face at events organised by our partners.

An invaluable opportunity to expand their personal and professional network alongside developing new knowledge and skills, Brightside Connections is open to all our mentees at the end of a project, giving them access to:

Brightside Connections is accessed with same sign in details as the mentoring platform, so users don’t have to create a new account. They can personalise their experience to only receive information they’re interested in, making Brightside Connections a source of relevant and reliable advice and support whenever they need it.

We’re grateful to Credit Suisse for funding Brightside Connections.
