The Effects of a Mentoring Program on At-Risk Elementary Students
MetadataShow full item record
This research study was designed to develop, implement, and evaluate a mentoring program for elementary at-risk students in a K-8 school district. The program took place over a two year period and involved thirty students, mentors, and parents for each year of the program. A survey questionnaire was administered at the end of the first and second year of the program to determine the subjects' opinion of the program. Subjects were asked to rate the effectiveness of the program and its impact in assisting the students to improve academically, socially, and emotionally. The results of this study support the belief that mentoring programs are beneficial to student achievement.
