How Bright Mentors works
Trouva's CEO, one of our ambassadors, speaking at a tech event.
Bright Mentors partners with secondary schools across London to
deliver mentorship classes on technology and science. Our mentors are active professionals working for various companies. We deliver our classes once a month during at least one school term.

Bright Mentors' volunteers in the news
Shawn's app development and design skills are profiled on GQ's list.
"I've helped with more computers in more schools than anybody else in the world and I'm absolutely convinced that is by no means the most important thing. The most important thing is a person. A person who incites and feeds your curiosity; and machines cannot do that in the same way people can."
Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
What did you dream of when you were 12 years old?
Maybe someone close to you made a difference. Or maybe you just had to figure it all out yourself. But how many times would you have liked to have an "older you" to guide you through those choices?
Our mentors help the "younger you" by meeting with 5 to 10 children once a month across secondary schools. They answer questions on how their professional lives look like, teach valuable STEM skills and explain what it took to get to where they are today.
