Abstract:
Durham’s mentoring program Durham Companions’ recent history is detailed. The group has experienced some poor leadership lately and was in threat of being defunded. The group has a strong history of mentoring troubled youth in an attempt to increase school attendance and reduce juvenile crime. Funding has been cut by the state, but after some criticism by Durham’s county commissioners, the group will continue to receive funding and mentor youth.
