Summary: Mentoring programs can support teens through troubling times and prevent exposure to negativity to ensure a proactive journey in their time of need. This study reviews current strategies, evaluates their relative merit, and concludes that in order to improve intervention more research on the context, structure and goals of mentoring programs must be undertaken.
