Test Labs to Strengthen Adult In-School Mentoring Program Completed

In 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada launched a large evaluation project to strengthen our Adult In-School Mentoring (ISM) Program - a program which provides mentors to students with all of the match activities taking place in school. After reviewing the literature and testing various modifications to the existing curriculum, the project has now concluded. Our Executive Summary provides an overview of the process and findings, along with four documents that outline the changes that were tested, and two final evaluation reports which detail the statistics generated and reviewed by the participating agencies.
