David L. DuBois, Jennifer K. Felner
This review examines research on mentoring for youth with backgrounds of involvement (or high-risk for involvement) in commercial sex activity (YCSA). The review is organized around four questions: What is the documented effectiveness of mentoring for YCSA? What factors condition or shape the effectiveness of mentoring for YCSA? What are the intervening processes that are most important in linking mentoring to outcomes for YCSA? To what extent have efforts to provide mentoring to YCSA reached and engaged targeted youth, been implemented with high quality, and been adopted and sustained by host organizations and settings?
