“Without MCR I don’t think I’d be doing what I’m doing right now. I’m not isolated. I’m part of a big community where we all support each other. I can’t even express my gratitude towards my mentor, my MCR Coordinator, and everyone involved in the programme.”
Today, Frances is sharing his letter to St Mungo, Glasgow’s patron Saint.
Like the young people before him, Frances wants to share his life story. He wants to show that him, and other young people like him, can achieve anything. They just need a bit of support to do it.
You can help inspiring young people like Frances in 2018.
Frances’ letter shows our young people have so much talent and potential. They just need a positive, encouraging Glaswegian who can help them flourish.
This month, we launched our #GiveAnHour campaign. One hour a week makes the difference to our city’s care experienced and disadvantaged young people. You don’t need any special qualifications. You just have to want to help.
