Looking Back at MCR’s 2017 and Really Looking Forward to 2018!

2017 has been an amazing year for MCR Pathways! We’re celebrating a decade of MCR. A decade of supporting Glasgow’s care-experienced young people. We reached some huge landmarks along the way!

This year we’ve support more care-experienced and disadvantaged young people than ever before. We expanded into all secondary schools in Glasgow. This is a complete testament to you – our mentors, supporters and partners. Because of Individuals and organisations who go above and beyond for our youngsters we’re able to change lives. We all want to ensure they get the very best from their education. By working together, we’re able to help them achieve that.

#GiveAnHour to Care-experience Young People

In 2018, we’ll have more youngsters asking for our help, but we can’t do it alone. Our #GiveAnHour campaign kicks off in January. We’re asking people, of all ages and backgrounds, from across Glasgow to #GiveAnHour of their time. By spending one hour a week, listening to and encouraging a disadvantaged young person you’ll make the difference. You’ll give them the confidence to find, grow and use their talents and skills.

MCR’s young people have so much talent and potential. But they need a positive, encouraging Glaswegian who can help them flourish.

Want to know how you can make a life-changing difference to a disadvantaged young person in Glasgow? The next step is to become a mentor.

Can you support MCR in other ways? We’re looking for volunteer support across a range of projects and activities. Here are our volunteering opportunities.

Can your organisation help? To get involved in our Talent Taster programme, alongside our partners such as Glasgow Life and The Herald, simply GET INVOLVED! We can’t wait to work with you to offer our city’s most disadvantaged a gateway to an expanding menu of opportunities and tasters of university, college and employment.
