Sixty Percent of Coös Youth Report Having a Mentor in Their Lives. Paper 194. New Hampshire and New England Fact Sheet No. 8
Scovill, Kent; Tucker, Corinna Jenkins
Carsey Institute
In this brief, authors Kent Scovill and Corinna Jenkins Tucker describe Coös youths' mentor relationships using data from the Carsey Institute's Coös Youth Study collected in 2007. They report that, in 2007, a majority of Coös youth in seventh and eleventh grade (60.2 percent) report having a mentor. In addition, 68 percent of Coös youths' mentors are extended family members, and females are more likely than males to report a mentor relationship. Considering how mentoring relationships can play a crucial role in adolescents' lives, they conclude that efforts to strengthen the capacity for arranged and naturally occurring mentor relationships in Coös County could be strengthened with local and broader support.
