Ementoring gives people the chance to get one-to-one support and advice from a volunteer independent of their ordinary life. Our projects use a ‘near to peer’ approach based on our users’ interests and experience. Young people are connected with volunteer mentors from universities or a range of professional backgrounds, who can support them into further or higher education or the world of work.
Our projects are run in partnership with universities, local authorities and partners from the voluntary and corporate sectors. Partners can subscribe to our Bright Links ementoring service, or develop a customised project with us. Brightside also create ementoring projects for specific career interests and target groups.

Brightside's flagship ementoring programme connects 14-19 year olds with undergraduate mentors or professionals who can help them explore their options for higher education, and provide advice on student finance and other aspects of university life.
Brightside can develop branded websites for your specific project or organisation. Customising your site allows you to integrate ementoring into your brand and enhance your users' experience through a range of additional content and functionality.
Brightside's subject-specific ementoring creates links between school pupils who are interested in a specific career, and an undergraduate or professional working or studying in that area.
Brightside are experienced in running projects designed to reach and provide targeted support for specific groups such as student parents or children in care.
