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.
There is potential in each and every young person, but, for many, circumstances make it difficult for them to realise it. Our aim is to help our young people unlock this potential, realise their skills, and progress onto a positive destination.
MCR’s mentors are supporting Scotland’s young people with a caring approach and a listening ear. Our volunteers meet with their mentees for an hour a week. Mentors help young people build aspirations and are a gateway to opportunities, including university, college and employment.
Schools are an essential part of the MCR community. The strong partnerships we build help us all support young people to find, grow and use their talents. Click the button to hear more from the schools we work with.
We are proud to have mentors who want to support MCR by sharing our story and encouraging more mentors to join. Mentor Ambassadors actively support us with events and sharing their experiences of mentoring with friends, family and colleagues. We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested.
