Success Stories: Young People

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

Why Mentoring Matters

Positive Destinations

National 51%

MCR Pathways 86%

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 most disadvantaged 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.
