Success Stories: Our Partners

Listen to the stories of our partners. Find out how MCR Pathways are supporting the nation’s young people.

Why Mentoring Matters

Positive Destinations

MCR transforms lives. In our most recent 2018 Impact Report, 86% of mentored leavers progressed to positive destinations (full-time employment, further education, or higher education) vs. 51% of care-experienced non-mentored leavers.

There’s amazing potential in our vulnerable young people, potential that’s often buried 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 unlock their potential.
