Research & Practice
Partnering with researchers at Georgia State University, Project Arrive uses data collected from mentors and mentees to measure several program outcomes including student well-being and academic success, underlying mechanisms of change, and mentor experiences. The research highlights contain valuable information about the extent to which Project Arrive fosters resilience in participants and the possible ways in which these changes occur.
You can use this information to help better understand group mentoring overall and develop an effective group mentoring program. Learn more about group mentoring best practices.
The Model for Change:
Previous research shows that Project Arrive is improving the lives of young people (see previous highlights). Our model proposes that Project Arrive increases participants’ resilience through relationships with individuals within the mentoring group and the group as a whole.
