Herrera, C., Sipe, C. L., McClanahan, W. S., Arbreton, A. J. A., & Pepper, S. K. (2000). Mentoring school-age children: Relationship development in community-based and school-based programs. Retrieved from

Part of an ongoing study conducted by Public/Private Ventures examining volunteer mentor’s experiences and relationship development within both community-based and school-based mentoring programs. This study addressed three primary questions:

  1. What is school-based mentoring?
  2. Are mentors in both types of programs developing significant relationships with youth so that they are making a difference in their lives?
  3. What benchmarks can be developed to ensure the optimal development of these supportive relationships?

The researchers concluded that both school and community-based mentoring programs have the potential to create positive mentoring relationships and spotlighted the factors associated with the most supportive relationships.
