Thomas Keller, Renée Spencer
The goal of the Study To Analyze Relationships (STAR), is to understand how multiple program participants (mentor, mentee, parent/guardian, and program staff member) individually and collectively contribute to the development and duration of a new mentoring relationship. The STAR study assesses mentor, mentee, and parent/guardian characteristics, circumstances, and motivations prior to matching so that we can use this information to predict which relationships ultimately fare better than others.
