In this study of the effects of college-student mentoring on elementary, junior-high and high-school students, P/PV examined six Campus Partners in Learning (CPIL) programs that implemented a common programmatic core in different ways, such as by varying the size of classes, the age of students served and the location of the mentoring sessions. The report concludes such mentoring can be an effective tool in improving academic and social outcomes but cautions that involving college students as mentors presents special challenges that require administrative structure and substantive support beyond that typically provided.
