My Life T4
My Life T4

This mentoring research study, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, which is part of the United States Department of Justice, extends and augments the current My Life intervention for youth in foster care and special education. This project includes additional post-intervention follow-up data collection as participants enter adulthood, assessment of justice-related outcomes, secondary analysis of mentoring practice components, and a cost-benefit analysis relative to justice-related outcome costs. Practice implications will be guided by focus groups with mentoring and justice system experts and will be disseminated widely to inform mentoring programs and policymakers.
