Abstract:
For children aged 6 to 16, who are at risk of dropping out, mentors can show them alternatives to the environments and opportunities they know. The problem mentoring programs face, though, is that there are not enough mentors available. For example, Durham's program, Durham Companions, has forty volunteer mentors in the program, but a waiting list of sixty children.
