to Shine

What have we done so far?

Shadow To Shine a community interested company (CIC) that offers mentoring, work experience and employability skills to young people aged between 16-25 from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds in inner city London. Our services provide young people with opportunities and the skills required to take their lives in a completely new direction. We strive to empower the next generation. Shadow To Shine’s model is simple; we cultivate an extensive network of mentors, corporate businesses and other charities with parallel ideals to promote a change in the way young people are recruited and viewed in the workplace. We facilitate work experiences through our partners so that our mentees have access to some of the best opportunities in London. Collectively, with our affiliates, we aim to uplift the next era of talent. The mission is clear: we will bridge the gap between young people and their work based and entrepreneurial goals so that they have long term success in their chosen profession.


Mission Statement

Shadow To Shine strives to change lives and motivate the next generation, inspiring them to become leaders and curators of their own communities. Boosting hope with confidence, empowerment, and skill-shares, we encourage a vision of a limitless future within their family, work, and social circles.


Cultivating a network of mentors, mentees, and other charities with parallel passions, Shadow To Shine is a home grown CIC with a concept of cultural change, and industry shakeups, through the uplifting of a fresh era.

What do people say about us?

"I have enjoyed my work experience with Rokstone in a busy working environment, learning new skills, and seeing how a business is run day to day, how to develop and build relationships and understand the needs and the want of a company, it’s has helped me develop and understand what my strengths and weaknesses are, it’s has gave me an insight of what it would it be like to start up my own business."
