Faith-Based Mentoring: A Preventive Program Strategy for At-Risk Youth (Workshop 135)
The workshop presents information about current community mentoring projects conducted under the auspices of a variety of faith communities and provides information about policy initiatives supporting faith-based mentoring efforts at the Federal, State, and local levels. This session also includes an in-depth look at an ongoing faith-based mentoring project serving adolescent African American males from single parent homes residing in Howard County, Maryland. Participants gain insight into the organizational background of this type of mentoring project as well as learn about the ways in which community partnerships can be established to support faith-based mentoring and the importance of ongoing evaluation in sustaining such efforts.
