Role of whānau in youth mentoring relationships - Seelye Fellow Public Lecture Event as iCalendar
01 May 2017
12 - 1:30pm
Location: 74 Epsom Avenue, Auckland
Host: Faculty of Education and Social Work
Mentoring is often thought of as simply a relationship between a youth and an older, wiser and caring adult, with programs focusing the bulk of their attention on the mentor-youth dyad. Increasingly, however, programs are involving families in the mentoring process in some ways. The findings from recent studies examining family involvement will be presented and considered in the context of some of the research on family involvement in the related fields of youth development and education. Participants will consider the implications of this research for mentoring program practices and reflect on their own program’s approach to family involvement in mentoring and other youth services.
