Abstract

The goal of this project is to identify the strengths, weaknesses, and different methodologies in which youth mentoring is done. Metrics such a drug use, alcohol abuse, and retention will be use in determining which methodologies provide the most success. Interviews will be conducted with mentors, and administrators in mentoring programs. In particular three programs will be looked at as case studies: Books and Basketball, WPI Academic Advising, and The Summer Project. Suggestions will be made as to what activities lead to the greatest success.
