We are thrilled to be launching Young Herts Talent in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council in 2021.
MCR Pathways is a national charity. 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.
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 and be there. Our mentors help the young person they are matched with, to realise their full potential and be empowered with the confidence and belief to make it happen.
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.
ScotCen’s 2020 three year study on MCR found that mentoring profoundly impacts care-experienced pupil’s education outcomes. Compared to non mentored care-experienced young people, those who were mentored were more likely to:
Achieve one or more SCQF Level 5 qualification (%)
Leave school to college, university or employment (%)
We are thrilled to be selected as a winner at the Centre for Social Justice Awards 2021!
