Evaluation of An Advocacy-based Mentoring Program


Through the OJJDP FY 2011 Research on Best Practices for Mentoring solicitation, OJJDP supported evaluations that would enhance what is understood about mentoring as a prevention strategy for youth who are at risk of involvement or already involved in the juvenile justice system. The Evaluation of An Advocacy-based Mentoring Program evaluated four Youth Advocate Programs, Inc. (YAP) in separate regions of the country. The primary goal of the research project was to provide estimates of the effectiveness of youth advocacy as delivered through these programs.
