About The
Lighthouse Project

We are excited to launch The Lighthouse Project which pairs driven young people aged 16-19 from African and Caribbean heritage with a skilled mentor from Google. This is an excellent development and training opportunity for young people from under-represented backgrounds to build valuable relationships with mentors at Google, develop their confidence, knowledge of careers, entry routes and future employability.

Successful mentees will need to commit to attending 8 virtual sessions on Tuesdays from 16.00PM from the 11th May 2021. Throughout the 8 week project mentees can expect regular meetings with their mentors, participation in a range of skill based workshops, follow up assignments, group presentations and Q&A sessions with a range of Googlers including the recruitment team.
