Tomberg, Kathy (2012). Assessment of the YouthBuild Mentoring Initiative. Presentation to the YouthBuild USA National Mentoring Alliance Training. Orlando, Florida. The Research and Evaluation Center was asked to assist YouthBuild USA in assessing its OJJDP-funded mentoring initiative. The REC helped YouthBuild design and implement self-administered questionnaires that are being completed by YouthBuild students. The project will measure student perceptions of the role of mentors as part of YouthBuild and compare students in mentoring programs with those in non-mentoring programs.
