Synopsis: Adult one-to-one mentoring programs are associated with improvements in social and academic outcomes for at-risk children and youth. Less is known about the mechanisms through which benefits are achieved. A Canadian study of the Big Brothers Big Sisters community match program is currently underway to determine: (1) specific match relationship components associated with improved child outcomes, (2) mechanisms through which exposure improves child health , (3) influence of demographic and other risk variables on outcomes, and (4) agency, mentor and parent characteristics associated with improved outcomes. Preliminary study results are presented.
