This edition of the National Mentoring Research Center e-Newsletter is one of the special issues planned for quarterly release, focusing on mentoring research, the work of the NMRC Research Board, and emerging knowledge that can help with the planning and implementation of more effective mentoring services for youth.


This special edition of National Mentoring Research Center (NMRC) e-Newsletter features some insights from Dr. Bernadette Sánchez and Yesenia Garcia-Murillo about the importance of racial, ethnic, and cultural background similarity for some mentoring relationships; summarizes some new research articles produced by members of the NMRC Research Board and other scholars; and offers information about a new NMRC publication on cultural humility training for mentors. The quarterly special issues also answer questions from the field about mentoring research, including research-based insights about mentoring or issues of mentor program design or evaluation. Sections include featured article summaries with links to full reports; news of new mentoring research; and recent Research Board publications and tools, with links.
