Research Interests

My research interests are focused on the development and evaluation of early intervention programming, primarily mentoring interventions, for at-risk youth. Most recently, my colleagues, Drs. Zimmerman, Weiler, Krafchick, and Youngblade, received funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (2009-2012) to develop, implement, and evaluate Campus Connections: Therapeutic Mentoring for At-Risk Youth. Campus Connections is both a mentoring program for at-risk youth who are in need of extra support and guidance and a university course for university students who want an opportunity to enhance their education, hone their professional skills, and make a meaningful contribution by serving as a mentor to a youth in need. Campus Connections pairs at-risk youth, ages 10-18, with committed and trained student mentors, and provides a comfortable setting and engaging schedule of activities that allows these mentor-mentee pairs to develop meaningful relationships with one another. In a group setting on the CSU campus, student mentors spend 4 hours with their mentee each week offering academic support, positive social skill development, and interpersonal encouragement.

With Drs. Henry, Weiler, Lucas-Thompson, and Youngblade, I recently received funding from the William T. Grant Foundation to empirically test the impact and process of a unique mentoring innovation, Mentor Families, within the Campus Connections program. Mentor Families, which involves nesting 4 mentor-mentee pairs in a "family" group during Campus Connections, is hypothesized to improve outcomes for mentees and mentors by providing more opportunities for belonging, connectedness, and social support.
