Online mentoring

Getting the right information is essential for making the best decisions about the future – and who better to provide that advice than someone who has had to make those choices themselves?

Online mentoring – sometimes called e-mentoring – puts young people in touch with a trained online mentor who can answer questions about education and careers and provide personal advice to guide them in the right direction.

It’s not just a great way for young people to get support.  Online mentoring is also a great volunteering opportunity for people who want to use their own skills and experience to help someone else do well in life.

Brightside is recognised as the clear leader in online mentoring, working with over 100 different organizations and supporting over 45,000 young people since 2003.  We have used our expertise to develop a unique online mentoring platform available to any organization who share our aim of reaching out to and inspiring young people.
