Evaluation of the Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program: Technical Report
(NCJ 252167) September 2018
Grant, 233 page(s)
The overall goal of OJJDP's demonstration field experiment, Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program, was to develop program models that specified what advocacy and teaching look like in practice and to understand whether encouraging the general practice of advocacy and teaching could improve youth outcomes. The American Institutes for Research (AIR) conducted a rigorous process and outcome evaluation of programs funded by OJJDP in 2012. The evaluation was designed to rigorously assess the effectiveness of programs that agreed to develop and implement enhanced practices incorporating advocacy or teaching roles for mentors, including providing focused prematch and ongoing training to mentors, and providing ongoing support to help mentors carry out the targeted roles.
