Juvenile justice system (JJS) youth are among the most vulnerable members of society. According to research, jail does not address their needs and frequently leads to harmful behavioral and mental health repercussions. Research in the field of adolescent delinquency shows a positive correlation between mentoring relationships and increased social capital, such as self-esteem, education, and employment achievements (Kelley & Lee, 2018)
Mentor+ is a project that focuses on designing an intervention of non-formal education, offering the mentoring methodology to engage, connect and empower young people in conflict with the law.
The project foresees the following results:
- A Mentoring Programme for justice-involved Youth
- A Mentors’ Handbook for mentoring justice-involved Youth
- A mobile application to support the mentoring programme
