The Role of Mentoring in College Access and Success

The Role of Mentoring in College Access and Success, from the Pathways to College Network and the National College Access Network, offers insight into the scholarly research related to the unique role of mentoring and mentors in providing information, guidance, and encouragement as young people prepare for the transition into college. Given the urgency and national focus on college access and success, college access and mentoring program staff have an important role to play in supporting this work. With an emphasis on implications, the brief aims to serve as a tangible resource for practitioners from college access and mentoring programs that seek to ensure that their efforts are research-based and targeted in ways that will produce the most positive outcomes for young people. Additionally, brief features an interview with the leaders of Philadelphia-Futures' Sponsor-A-Scholar program to share lessons from the field.
