A Second Chance: Developing Mentoring and Education Projects for Young People.
This manual is a guide to setting up a project to work with disadvantaged urban youth. It is based on the Dalston Youth Project, an English program that combines mentoring with an education program to reconnect young people to mainstream education, training, and employment opportunities. The manual is designed to be used by statutory bodies, voluntary organizations, and individuals who are interested in starting community-based mentoring and education programs. It reviews the steps in setting up, developing, and implementing a program, from identifying local needs to fund raising. It also examines all aspects of the mentoring process, including matching mentors and mentees. Seventeen appendixes contain sample materials and supplemental material for program development and implementation. (SLD)
