MCR Pathways Brings Mentoring to England

MCR's award-winning Young Talent mentoring programme is now available in 11 schools in Hertfordshire & 7 schools in Surrey.

Young Herts Talent & Young Surrey Talent

MCR Pathways is a national, award-winning mentoring programme. Our vision is that every care-experienced young person, or those who have experienced disadvantage, gets the same education outcomes, career opportunities and life chances as every other young person.

Our school-based mentoring programme supports young people to find, grow and use their talents. We help young people to build confidence, broaden aspirations and explore their future pathways. MCR’s Young Talent programme helps young people progress to positive post-school destinations.

Why Mentoring Matters

MCR mentoring transforms lives. Scotcen, the Scottish arm of Britain’s leading independent social research institute NatCen, found that 81.6% of mentored care-experienced young people leave school to a positive destination (full-time employment, further education, or higher education) compared to 59.8% of care-experienced non-mentored school leavers.

There’s amazing potential in our young people, potential that’s often hampered 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 find, grow and use their talents.
