This "Mentoring Best Practices" project investigated the effectiveness of group mentoring as an intervention strategy for improving developmental outcomes among youth at risk for juvenile justice system involvement and produced an operations manual that can facilitate effective replication of the Project Arrive model. The evaluation data revealed positive effects of participation for several resilience assets and reducing academic risk factors. Findings also pointed to the role of positive relationships with mentors and group climate in contributing to these outcomes.
