Mentoring as Service-Learning for Undergraduates 

Service-learning can play a critical role in the professional 
development of college students majoring in the social sciences.  
Moreover, it can strengthen relationships between college campuses 
and communities.  We describe the results of the evaluation of a 
service-learning project designed to facilitate delinquency 
prevention and to promote resiliency in at-risk youth in our 
community.  The involvement of undergraduate and graduate students 
has proven instrumental to the overall success of the program.
