With over two million young people now involved in an adult volunteer program and further growth expected, mentoring is an important topic. Here, Rhodes (psychology, Univ. of Massachusetts, Boston) well summarizes the results of her decade-long analysis, as well as other studies (e.g., the Public/Private Venture's survey of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America) of what exactly makes youth mentoring programs effective. Mentors, she found, can greatly support at-risk adolescents in three important ways: enhancing their social skills, improving the cognitive skills through dialog and listening, and serving as a role model and advocate. However, those not up to the difficult task of forming an emotional bond can actually harm more than help. Demonstrating strong research and writing skills, Rhodes also defines mentoring, discusses some of the social and political factors that have heightened interest in mentoring, reviews the risks of these relationships, highlights some of the lessons from behavioral therapy that might be profitably applied to mentoring, and makes recommendations for further research. Highly recommended for all academic libraries supporting the social sciences. Dale Farris, Groves, TX
