Vulnerable Youth: Federal Mentoring Programs and Issues
Adrienne L. Fernandes-Alcantra (au)
Youth mentoring refers to a relationship between youth äóî particularly those most at risk of experiencing negative outcomes in adolescence and adulthood -- and the adults who support and guide them. The origin of the modern youth mentoring concept is credited to the efforts of charity groups that formed during the Progressive era of the early 1900s to provide practical assistance to poor and juvenile justice-involved youth, including help with finding employment. Approx. 2.5 million youth today are involved in formal mentoring relationships through Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of America and similar organizations. Contemporary mentoring programs seek to improve outcomes and reduce risks among vulnerable youth by providing positive role models who regularly meet with the youth in community or school settings.
