Dr. David DuBois is joined by program leader Elizabeth Higly to discuss their recent evaluation of the Great Life Mentoring program, which provides mentoring services for youth who are receiving clinical mental health services. This interview offers both practitioner and researcher insights into how this program is able to utilize volunteer mentors in conjunction with clinical services and details a number of positive outcomes that the program has produced related to the functioning and time in treatment for youth referred to the program. A great way of hearing both researcher and program staff perspectives and an illustration of what it can look like when those groups collaborate effectively around evaluation.

Reflections On Research - Season 2 Episode #4 - Liz Raposa and Jean Rhodes (part 2)
In part two of our interview with Liz Raposa and Jean Rhodes, We go deeper into the possible directions for the mentoring field based on the findings of their meta-analysis and other factors. They make a compelling case for training mentors to be effective delivery systems for evidence-based interventions, although that shift might result in major changes for the mentoring field and how volunteers spend their time. Anyone interested in the future of relationship-based interventions like mentoring will find interesting ideas in this discussion.
