What is Mentoring?

Key Mentoring Research

Youth mentoring research aims to explore the full range of issues that are involved in making high-quality mentoring available to all young persons. These issues include, but are not limited to, the characteristics of mentoring relationships that are most important in promoting positive developmental outcomes for youth, the effectiveness of different mentoring programs, practices, and the ways in which the most beneficial forms of mentoring may differ as a function of youths' personal characteristics and life circumstances. The breadth of topics currently being actively researched in the field is evident in the content of the most recent edition of the Handbook of Youth Mentoring (link opens in a new tab) as well as The Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring (link opens in a new tab).
