While one-on-one mentoring has a proven positive effect on children, little research has been done on the role of mentoring in the African American community, particularly with regards to recruiting and retaining mentors. Urban Leadership Institute has surveyed 576 African American males and a number of community-based mentoring programs to examine the barriers to serving as a mentor and ways to promote mentoring and effective training.
