New MENTOR research from Wahington State Mentors. This report presents results from the first large-scale evaluation to examine how the levels and types of risk youth face may influence their mentoring relationships and the benefits they derive from mentoring programs. See Press Release.
This research shows that mentoring can have a positive impact, if volunteers and youth receive training and are well supported. The challenge is to build marketing strategies that provide consistent support to programs designed to build and sustain long-term matches with youth living in high risk circumstances. That's the focus of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute,LLC.
