Mentoring Matters

Be Part of #TheRippleEffect

All across Scotland, there are young people who feel like no one is listening. Home might be chaotic and school can be a constant battle. Care-experienced and disadvantaged young people in our community face these challenges. But mentors make all the difference.

That positive relationship and commitment to be there for someone, one hour a week, can change everything. Our schools see the impact, communities feel a change and organisations see the difference in the next generation.

More about MCR 

MCR Pathways supports care-experienced and disadvantaged young people to help them realise their full potential. The programme includes mentoring, group work and Talent Tasters, an introduction to career sessions. MCR Pathways is embedded in all Glasgow secondaries and expanding into other local authorities including Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen, West Dunbartonshire, Edinburgh, North Ayrshire, and South Lanarkshire.
