Informational Mentors and Role Models in the Lives of Urban Mexican-Origin Adolescents.
Stanton-Salazar, Ricardo D.; Spina, Stephanie Urso
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v34 n3 p231-254 Sep 2003
Investigates the social networks and help-seeking practices of Mexican-origin youth in San Diego, California, presenting data on adult, non-family informal mentors and role models. Data from surveys, interviews, and ethnography highlight adolescents' critical understandings of these significant figures in their lives, the rare and fortuitous nature of these relationships, and their empowering influence in the lives of urban, low income, immigrant Latino youth.
