This summer, as part of our broader Purpose agenda, half of our interns were Bright Future students from Be.Face. Onboarded as job students, the graduates received our support for their learning, growth and potential ‘bright future’ at Deloitte.
Bright Future is a free mentoring scheme for talented students, designed to facilitate their transition from higher education to employment. Run by the not-for-profit Be.Face, managers and supervisors guide motivated students toward a better understanding of the world of work—knowledge that can’t be learned in the classroom.
This was not just an opportunity for the students, but also for our people. They were invited to volunteer as a mentor and help a student discover what life as a consultant is like by showing them the ins and outs of their role, teaching day-to-day tasks, and sharing their knowledge and experience.
Our mentors made an impact while building leadership abilities, strengthening their communication skills, and learning new perspectives.
