MCR Pathways is a Scottish charity. Our vision is that every care-experienced and disadvantaged young person in Scotland gets the same education outcomes, career opportunities and life chances as every other young person.
The impact it has
MCR transforms lives. In our most recent 2018 Report, 86% of mentored leavers progressed to positive destinations (full-time employment, further education, or higher education) vs. 51% of care-experienced non-mentored leavers.
How it works
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 the desire to help a young person. Our mentors are diverse because each young person is different.
There’s amazing potential in our most disadvantaged young people, potential that’s often buried because of difficult life experiences. Mentors bridge talent with opportunity. By spending just one hour a week listening and being there for your young person you will empower them to unlock their potential.
“You can’t underestimate just how important it is for young people to have someone there for them, someone they can depend on, who listens. It’s an hour of your time, it will be the best hour of your week!” Sharon, Mentor.
