Caring for Kids in Communities

Using Mentorship, Peer Support, and Student Leadership Programs in Schools


Julia Ellis, Jan Small-McGinley and Lucy De Fabrizio

Caring for Kids in Communities invites schools to consider the use of mentorship, peer support, and student leadership programs to positively support the growth and learning of all students. It presents research on successful programs spanning kindergarten through grade 12 and includes a wealth of case studies of individual programs as well as individual pairs of mentors and mentees. Thus, this book provides insight into the experiences of students, mentors, teachers, and coordinators from these programs as well as descriptive, practical material for implementing similar programs.
