The overall goal of this study was to examine the impacts of the Saving Lives, Inspiring Youth (S.L.I.Y.) program. The program aims to improve resilience and reduce aggression and other behavioral problems for disadvantaged youth residing in low-income, high-violence communities. S.L.I.Y.'s 142 high school students have mentored 159 middle school students from the same communities.
