Part 3: Newer approaches to mentoring older adolescents with Dr. Sarah E.O. Schwartz

This third webinar of it's series, in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Mentoring Research, will discuss new approaches to mentoring that aim to empower adolescents and emerging adults to recruit mentors and other supportive adults. It will focus on research from two such models, (1) Youth Initiated Mentoring, in which adolescents nominate mentors from their existing social networks, and (2) Connected Scholars, in which students are taught to recruit mentors and other forms of social capital to advance their academic and career-related goals.

Sarah E.O. Schwartz, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Suffolk University. Professor Schwartz focuses on ways in which mentoring relationships and networks of support foster healthy outcomes during the transition to adulthood. She conducted early and influential research on youth-initiated mentoring. More recently, she received funding from the WT Grant Foundation to evaluate an intervention she developed to teach first-generation college students to cultivate mentoring relationships and social capital in the transition to college.
