Research has shown that mentoring can have powerful and lasting positive impacts on the behavioural, academic and vocational outcomes of at-risk youth. This resource sheet examines the evidence on the effectiveness of formal mentoring programs for helping Indigenous young people at risk of engaging in antisocial and risky behaviours. It reviews effective mentoring relationships, how they work, and what further research is needed.
