New OJJDP Research-in-Brief on the Effectiveness of Juvenile Mentoring for Youth on Parole and Probation in Ohio
DECEMBER 19, 2017
A new OJJDP-funded Research-in-Brief, released this November, summarizes the findings of a study conducted at the Center for Criminal Justice Research at the University of Cincinnati. The study looked at six Ohio mentoring programs and their impact on youth recidivism. Research questions explored whether mentoring services were effective in reducing delinquent and criminal reoffending, whether the impact of mentoring services differed based on youth characteristics, the impact of match quality on youth outcomes, and the impact of mentoring program quality on youth outcomes.
