Thesis Abstract / Summary:

The focus of this action research project is to evaluate the effects of a cross-age peer-mentoring program on at-risk students. This action research project examines how self-concept of middle school students is affected with the involvement in a cross-age peer mentoring program, Born to Mentor. This research study will take high school students that are trained in working with younger at-risk students, to provide support, a positive role model, social skills, and encouragement to new incoming fifth and six grade students in their behaviors and academics. In addition, the results of this study will also aid in providing support for the future development of a middle school guidance department, which will include a mentoring program.
