The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada (BBBSC) have released exciting details about their 5-year mentoring study, which highlights the impact of mentoring on young lives. Backed by a $1.7 million dollar grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), this study and its findings will help BBBSC to better inform their mentoring system, leading to more personalized and overall better-quality mentoring. The study suggests that boys and girls with a mentor are better off in academic, social, and emotional domains.
“When the findings of this research are fully understood, we expect that virtually every aspect of how we approach, design and maintain our mentoring relationships will be impacted.”
