Mentoring Matters to Perth & Kinross

Why Mentoring Matters

Young Perth & Kinross Talent, developed by MCR Pathways, is helping young people find, grow and use their talent in Perth & Kinross.

Our 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. Young people are matched with a mentor based on their personalities, interests and career aspirations.  All young people are different and have different needs, so it’s important that our mentors come from all walks of life.

Role models make a life-changing difference to young people. Additionally, mentoring has been shown to make a powerful and positive impact on those who give their time and support.

The Motivation, Commitment and Resilience of our young people and mentors inspires us and pushes us forward every day.
