Join us on Wednesday 6th March 0800 – 0830 for our next Breakfast Briefing, hosted in partnership with MCR Pathways.
Who are MCR Pathways?
MCR Pathways is a national award winning charity, supporting young people from care-experienced backgrounds as well as young people who are experiencing barriers to their education. The main form of support MCR Pathways provides to the young people on its programme is a volunteer mentor.
What is the role of a MCR Pathways Mentor?
The role of the mentor is simple and also life changing. MCR Pathways mentors are matched with a young person and support them in school for 1 school period a week during term time. The purpose of these sessions is to help the young person to build their confidence and to find, grow and use their talent. The ultimate goal is to support the young person down a positive pathway when they leave school. Onto college, university, formal employment.
How can I help?
You can help by becoming a partner organisation with MCR Pathways or by becoming a mentor yourself. At the session MCR Pathways will go into detail about what both of these involve and the benefits that mentoring brings to the young people it supports, the mentors themselves and the organisations that partner with MCR Pathways.
