EFFECTIVENESS OF YOUTH MENTORING PROGRAMS NOT ALWAYS AS ADVERTISED MU researchers identify seven 'best practices' for successful programs COLUMBIA, Mo. Youth mentoring programs have become increasingly popular in the United States so much so that mentoring will be a component of President Bush's USA Freedom Corps. However, according to a new University of Missouri-Columbia study, the benefits that mentoring programs advertise are not always the benefits that kids receive. "Although these programs show promise, there is a lot of overselling when it comes to youth mentoring," said David DuBois, associate professor of psychological sciences and lead author of the study.

Teen mentoring program, pregnancy prevention, self esteem, career development, role model, health, youth development.
Helping San Diego Youth Build a Bright Future Teen pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, drugs, crime. If they only knew what you know now. The pregnancy rate among adolescents in the United States is higher than any other Western nation, and the statistics are the very worst right here in California. What are the causes of this problem, and how can we solve it?. We believe the solution lies in information, education, and support. Many teenagers have few positive role models in their lives. They need someone they can talk to, someone they can trust, someone who can help them make good decisions for themselves. That’s why BRIGHT Families matches teens with mentors who provide support, guidance, and a caring role model. The San Diego BRIGHT Families Project is a mentoring program to help youth negotiate through their turbulent teen years. A primary goal of the program is to provide youth with the knowledge and strength to avoid teen pregnancy. In addition, the program focuses on teaching teens how to have positive relationships, fostering a caring environment to help build self esteem, and exposing teens to different opportunities for careers and education. Mentors spend six months with their teens, for at least five hours per month. They talk with teens about reproductive health, teach them how to set and achieve goals, help with homework, and form positive relationships. BRIGHT Families trains mentors on the reproductive health curriculum, and also shows them how to effectively work with their mentees. In addition, the project provides mentor support and holds fun and educational group activities every month.

Mentoring is an established successful approach to engage and support young people in the community and to develop skills and employment futures. Mentoring includes training by example, where the mentor provides a young person with direction, support and feedback. It is a two-way street where both the mentor and mentoree develop a bond that offers an alternative to relationships developed within families and with peers.
The Office for Youth, in partnership with the positive aging unit of the Department of Human Services, is calling for applications for the IMPart project - Intergenerational Mentoring Project for the Arts. Funding of up to $5,000 is available to support individual IMPart projects. IMPart projects will encourage the exchange of knowledge, experience and skills between an experienced, older art practitioner as mentor, and a younger artist.
My Story
Finally, we are thrilled to make available online My Story, a Victorian computer mentoring project recently conducted by SkillsPlus Peninsula Inc with support from the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) through the Commonwealth Department of Education, Training and Youth Affairs.

Young people interviewed their mentor and then developed their biography in a range of multi-media forms.

Community Change for Youth Development: Ten Lessons From the CCYD Initiative
by Bernardine H. Watson
(December 2002, 38 pages) From 1995 through 2002, P/PV worked with six neighborhoods around the country to develop and institute a framework of "core concepts" to guide youth programming for the nonschool hours in those neighborhoods. The goal was to create programming that would involve a high proportion of each neighborhood's several thousand adolescents. This report summarizes the basic lessons that emerged from this Community Change for Youth Development (CCYD) initiative. The lessons address such topics as the usefulness of a "core concepts" approach; the dos and don'ts of involving neighborhood residents in change initiatives; the role of research; the role of youth; and the capacity of neighborhood-wide approaches to attract high-risk youth.
