In October, MCR Pathways had fantastic coverage on BBC 2 programme Timeline. The show covers thought-provoking stories and analysis from across Scotland.
BBC Timeline was eager to interview MCR Pathways following our announcement that by January 2018 the Young Glasgow Talent programme will be embedded in all Glasgow secondary schools. During the interview we share the difference mentoring is making to young people. Across Glasgow, young people are improving their education outcomes, career opportunities and life chances.
Young people Afonso and Liam joined their mentors at St Andrew’s for the feature story. Afonso, now at college, and Liam, now a qualified quantitative surveyor, described his school experience before and after mentoring. He describes their special relationship, how it developed and how it affected him.
Craig and Donna joined their mentees, while sharing the life-changing impact that being a mentor to a disadvantaged young person made to them.
MCR Founder and CEO, Iain MacRitchie, joined Shereen Nanjiani and Glen Campbell live in the Timeline studio. Detailing our Glasgow-wide expansion and our plans to support more local authorities.
