Fennimore, Todd F.
This booklet for mentors is part of a series of program materials for a school-based intervention process to help at-risk students stay in school. An introduction discusses the role of the mentor and the skills a mentor will need to promote the student's self-development. These skills are listening actively, problem solving, developing motivation, clarifying goals, sharing information, linking to others, and being an advocate. Some activities for the mentor are also suggested. (YLB)
