How Can You Help?

Mentors are ordinary people doing the extraordinary. Can you become a mentor and help unlock a young person's potential?

Get Involved

So many young people are full of potential, but they face tough challenges that make it more difficult for them to succeed. That’s where mentors make the difference. Volunteer MCR mentors spend just one hour a week with their young person but that consistent encouragement and support is what keeps young people engaged with school. Relationships are powerful and the key to this programme’s success. Can you become a mentor and help unlock a young person’s potential?

Ways To Help


Mentors spend just one hour a week listening to and encouraging their young person at school. The relationship that develops is what makes the difference.

Talent Tasters

Talent Tasters are a chance for young people to try out a job, college, or university in manageable, bite-sized chunks. They are designed to engage and inspire the younger generation with hands on learning experiences and raise their aspirations for a brighter future..

Become A Partner

Our partners encourage and support their staff to mentor. They also open their doors by hosting our young people on Talent Tasters – half day career sessions – that allow them to explore businesses and different roles. Everyone involved is committed to helping disadvantaged young people to be determined by their talents and not their circumstances. All it takes is one hour a week.


There are many ways to get involved at MCR Pathways. As well as our mentoring programme, we have inspiring volunteers currently supporting us across our whole organisation. From helping our busy marketing department, to passionate ambassadors who can help us drive our programme forward, please get in touch if you’d like to help.
