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.

Our schools-based Mentoring and Talent Taster programme supports vulnerable young people. Helping them to find, grow and use their inspiring talents and skills.

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.

MCR transforms lives. More care experienced young people achieve a positive pathway when they’re ready to leave school. All because of their Mentor’s support.

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. Life experience has knocked the confidence out of some, firmly locking away those seeds of aspiration and hope.

Mentors bridge 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.

The only requirement to becoming a life changing mentor is simply a desire to help a young person and put them first.

Building a positive relationship is based on listening, encouraging and simply turning up consistently, for no other reason than you care. You’ll realise the full potential of an inspiring young person and you’ll empower them with the confidence and belief to make it happen.
