How we work

We design and run programmes, recruit and train volunteers, and facilitate meaningful conversations between mentors and mentees.

We do this by collaborating with partners (including schools and employers) to deliver mentoring programmes through our safe and secure online platform.

When a young person first discovers Brightside, either through their school or one of our partners, they’ll make the decision to participate by using our platform (or downloading our app) to match with a mentor of their choice.

Once connected, the mentoring journey begins by sending and receiving messages.

The mentoring program is designed to encourage, support and inspire them by talking about their future, their ambitions and the steps that will help them get there.

We provide a bespoke branded site for our partners with access to our secure messaging system that’s been built with safeguarding at it’s core.

The platform is accessible from any device either through a browser or the app and has been built to support hundreds of thousands of users.

As our school’s careers champion, I’ve really enjoyed working with Brightside, seeing our pupils’ faces light up when they have found a mentor or the endless possibilities they see in their futures. It’s like a big weight has been lifted as they can envisage a pathway for themselves.
