Central to the programme are our Pathways Coordinators, who support young people and mentors within school pastoral and guidance teams, nurturing strong relationships. They are supported by Mentor Services Coordinators, who skillfully source and match mentors with programme participants.
Together, our MCR team and mentors drive positive change, empowering young people to cultivate Motivation, Commitment, and Resilience, and unlock their full potential.

Maybe classed as mature in age but very young at heart, Pamela is our National Mentor Recruitment Manager. Pamela’s journey began at the young age of fifteen when she embarked on her career as a Product Machinist. As she grew, so did her ambition, leading her to become a Work Study Engineer. However, after twenty year in manufacturing, Pamela decided to pursue a new path driven by her passion for supporting others. This led her to the field of Employability, where she honed her skills and expertise. Today, she brings her invaluable experience and dedication to her role at MCR. Outside of work, Pamela loves being in the great outdoors.
