The Effects of a Cross-Age Peer Mentoring Program on School Connectedness with Rural Populations
Kraus, Sarah Elizabeth Cravey; Cleveland, Richard E.
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v23 p26-37 2016
School-based mentoring continues to attract both attention and criticism among school leaders and researchers. This practitioner-university collaboration examined mentees' reported levels of school connectedness after a nine-week cross-age mentoring intervention. This study of 47 mentees attending a rural, low socioeconomic status (100% FRL) school investigated participants' school connectedness scores. Global school connectedness mean scores increased for all participants. Participants in the experimental group demonstrated statistically significant increases on the "Self-in-Future" subscale.
