Evaluation of Whether Cognitive Behavioral Mentoring Improves Outcomes for Young Women in Chicago


The research team has recruited 10 school sites and randomized more than 3,000 students into the study. The team continues to work on exploratory analysis, monitor the fidelity of how the program is being implemented, and plans to analyze the intermediate and long-term impacts of cognitive behavioral mentoring for young women. Once the team has completed all data collection and analyses, OJJDP expects to post a final technical report on the study's findings in 2021.
