|The study was designed as a comparative effectiveness trial examining enhancements to mentoringówhere mentors were asked to incorporate advocacy and teaching functions into their roles and programs provided training and additional ongoing support around the advocacy and teaching functionsórelative to business-as-usual mentoring (based on the programs' pre-existing model).
The impact analyses are structured to address two key questions. First, did Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program (MEDP) lead to more positive outcomes (i.e., social competence, academic performance, emotional well-being, self-worth, and perceptions of social support) for youth randomly assigned to receive enhanced mentoring in contrast to those assigned to receive business-as-usual mentoring? Second, did MEDP lead to reduced involvement in problem behaviors (i.e., involvement in delinquency, problem behaviors, misbehavior in school) for those youth randomly assigned to receive enhanced mentoring in contrast to those assigned to receive business-as-usual mentoring?|
