THE Herald is supporting The MCR Pathways Project campaign to recruit more new mentors for disadvantaged young people in and around Glasgow.

If you are a motivated, committed adult you could offer the support these young people need to overcome the barriers that mean so few currently make it to higher and further education.

An hour a week, plus travelling time, and a willingness to be a listening ear and put a young person first are the only skills you will need to help turn around someone's life. All necessary training and support will be given.

To get involved, visit or contact Donna Cunningham on donna.cunningham@glasgow.
