Event Details

Adolescence is a period when youth may be in particular need of programming that focuses on their strengths, not their deficits. Building on twenty years of research on the University of Virginia’s Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP), a combined group and one-on-one mentoring initiative that pairs college women with adolescent girls for a year, this presentation will explore how integrating a competence approach with leadership development activities in a mentoring program may be one avenue for bringing out the best in both mentees and their mentors. YWLP has served over 1500 youth through the home program, and numerous others through its 12 national and international “sister sites.” Evaluations of YWLP indicate a higher than average level of mentor and mentee program completion and satisfaction, and five years post-participation, lower levels of delinquency and higher levels of peer self-esteem.

Presentation Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn the advantages for mentees and mentors of integrating a competence approach with a focus on leadership development in a mentoring program for youth.
  2. Participants will be able to identify how curricular components and program structure in a combined group and one-on-one mentoring program can address mentees and mentors complex and interactive needs.
