This session will shared recent findings on effective mentoring for youth who are considered at high-risk of under education, unemployment, homelessness, criminalization, and other negative outcomes. Mentoring for youth who face multiple barriers to success may require different approaches and strategies to be successful. This session will share best practices to build, strengthen, evaluate and sustain effective mentoring programs for a variety of youth populations who experience a relatively high level of vulnerability and marginalization. Participants will also be introduced to an online toolkit on this topic that was launched by the Ontario Mentoring Coalition in April with funds provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services of the Province of Ontario.
