About

Youth mentoring research has been a monolith; focusing primarily on data sets from formalized programs and by proxy, the young people attracted to those programs. The knowledge about mentoring, how it works, who it works for and why it works, stems from these foundational studies and has informed sets of standards and training curriculums that continue to guide the field. As more attention is paid to issues of equity, mentoring and the researchers who study it, require a more nuanced understanding of what mentoring is and how it operates in the lives of various types of marginalized youth. 

In order to contribute to the evolving field of mentoring research and practice, this project will engage women of color in a study of the mentoring experiences of women and girls of color. 

Risks and challenges

Rigorous qualitative research takes time and effort. In order to do this and to do this well, we must design and execute a qualitative methodology. Analyze the data, and find meaningful and accessible ways to share what we've found with our community. We are well versed in sharing this information with the academy, our challenge will be making this information available and useful to our communities.
