Do youth mentoring programs change the perspective and improve the life opportunities of at-risk youth?
By Núria Rodrígues Planas, Germany

Positive but modest effects of mentoring was found, especially for females, the most disadvantaged or at-risk youths. The results  however vary depending on the characteristic of the individuals involved and the quality of the relationships formed between mentors and mentees. So the researcher ask: Do the short-term changes generated by mentoring programs persist, or do they fade over time? Do they translate into longer-term payoffs, as measured by different life achievements?
