MCR Pathways is a Glasgow based charity. Our vision is that every care experienced and disadvantaged young person in Glasgow, and soon Scotland, gets the same education outcomes, career opportunities and life chances as every other young person.

Become a mentor

Our schools-based Mentoring and Talent Taster programme supports vulnerable young people. We help them them to find, grow and use their inspiring talents and then progress onto positive destinations.

Become a mentor

Our volunteer Mentors spend one hour a week listening to and encouraging their young person. The only qualification you need to be a mentor is to want to help. Our mentors are diverse because each young person is different.

MCR transforms lives. Because of their mentor’s support more care experienced young people achieve a positive pathway when they’re ready to leave school.

Why Mentor?

“You can’t underestimate how important it is for young people to have someone there for them, someone they can depend on, who listens,” Liz, Mentor.

We know that there’s amazing potential and talent in our most disadvantaged young people. For many, that potential has yet to be discovered because of difficult life experiences.

A Mentor bridges talent with opportunity. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are dedicating one hour a week to support care-experienced youngsters. Taxi drivers, nurses, finance assistants, joiners, professionals and CEOs have answered our young people’s call.

Building a positive relationship is based on listening, encouraging and turning up consistently, because you care. As a mentor you will empower a young person with the confidence and belief to unlock their potential.
