This Model/Population review examines research on mentoring for youth who live in rural settings. The review is organized around four topics: (1) the documented effectiveness of mentoring for youth residing in rural settings; (2) the extent to which mentor, youth, and program characteristics/practices influence effectiveness of mentoring youth in rural settings; (3) the intervening processes that may link mentoring rural youth to youth outcomes; and (4) the extent to which efforts to reach and engage youth in rural settings achieve high-quality implementation and adopt and sustain programs over time.
