2018 marks the 15th anniversary of Brightside. We are proud to present our anniversary report, which marks the milestone of Brightside supporting over 100,000 young people since 2003.
Beginning with 50 students in London 15 years ago, Brightside now mentors over 10,000 students a year across every region of England. Our latest report looks back at how Brightside has grown to be the largest online mentoring organisation in the UK, and features firsthand accounts of how mentoring has changed lives from some of the tens of thousands of mentees and mentors we have worked with. The report also gives a glimpse of our exciting plans for the future as well as the impact data from our recent programme-wide evaluation.
Thank you to all the friends, partners and supporters who have made our success possible and – most importantly – all the volunteer mentors who have given their time and dedication to supporting so many young people over the last 15 years. Here’s to the next 15!
