National Mentoring Month Resources Available Online

January 16, 2014

National Mentoring MonthJanuary is National Mentoring Month. Mentoring is based on the premise that predictable, consistent relationships with stable, competent adults can help youth cope with challenges and steer clear of high-risk behaviors. Research shows that mentoring programs can improve behavioral, social, emotional, and academic outcomes for at-risk youth. In recognition of the month-long observance and to serve as a resource throughout the year, the National Criminal Justice Reference Service is offering a Mentoring Resources Special Feature, an online compilation of links to publications, funding, and related resources on mentoring activities.


Register to attend the 2014 National Mentoring Summit, cohosted by OJJDP, on January 30-31, 2014, in Arlington, VA.
