Become a Mentor and #BeTheBridge for a Young Person
Do you have just one hour per week to meet with a like-minded young person in school and chat about hobbies, interests and career aspirations you have in common? Mentoring charity MCR Pathways are looking for volunteer mentors to sign up and support a young person in one of six Aberdeen schools: Dyce Academy, Harlaw Academy, Hazlehead Academy, Lochside Academy, Northfield Academy and St Machar Academy.
Meeting weekly, for a minimum of one year, volunteers can help a young person they are matched with to build confidence, aspirations and work towards a strong post-school destination. Not only does the pupil benefit, but the mentor gains a number of life skills and, most importantly, a friend for life.
There are no qualifications required and full training is provided. All MCR asks is that mentors are over 21 and are there consistently for their young person. The signup process can be completed online and, as restrictions allow, face-to-face mentoring shall resume in schools where possible.
You can #BeTheBridge between potential and possibility. There are so many young people who need a mentor that’s there just for them.
