New partnership will give more support for our former mentees

Brightside is very pleased to announce the launch of our new network for former mentees, funded by Credit Suisse. As a part of this work to continue supporting our mentees beyond our mentoring projects, we will be collaborating with Bright Network to provide careers advice and guidance to our mentees that go on to higher education.

Bright Network have an impressive list of partners, who offer some of the most exciting graduate programmes in the UK. Former Brightside mentees who join Bright Network will be able to receive tailored support in accessing these opportunities, from identifying the best one for them, through application to interview.

Bright Network also hosts frequent events, where members are able to meet employers directly across a range of industries, as well as network with other members. These opportunities will help our former mentees improve their social capital and thus help them achieve the future they aspire to.

We will be launching this service in the coming weeks. If you are a former mentee or mentor of Brightside, are currently studying at university and would like to find out how to access this opportunity, please send an email to

Brightside is also looking for current and former mentees to help build the network by joining our regional youth boards. Find out more.
