Walsh, David S.; Veri, Maria J.; Willard, Jason J.
Physical Educator, v72 n2 2015
The purpose of this article is to present university student mentors' perspectives on the impact of a teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) model youth program called the Kinesiology Career Club. Data sources in this qualitative case study included program observations, mentoring reflections, and semistructured interviews. Data analysis produced 320 raw meaning units coded into two high-level themes, six mid-level themes, and 14 low-level themes. Findings indicate that high school participants are able to transfer TPSR goals to their possible futures, explore kinesiology and other careers of choice, and effectively address potential life hopes and fears. Service learning--based outcomes of personal, intellectual/career, and social/community influence for the university student mentors were also revealed in the findings.
