MCR Pathways is a transformational secondary school mentoring and talent development programme. It supports care-experienced and other vulnerable young people experiencing disadvantage to realise their full potential through education.
MCR’s relationship-based mentoring model has evolved into an integrated programme supporting primary school transition and delivering weekly group work in S1 and S2. Young people from S3 upwards are carefully matched with a volunteer, trained mentor to meet one-to-one on a weekly basis. Young people also have the opportunity to access an offer of employment, college and university experiences. MCR’s programme dramatically improves educational achievement, wellbeing and post-school destinations.
MCR young people tell their stories far better than us. Hear them in their own words in these short films of young people who have participated in the programme, reflecting on how mentoring has helped them create better futures for themselves:
