applied research approach helps programs improve services and compete for
as little as $500,
ARC can help your program assess match quality. Larger evaluations can yield
meaningful insight on developmental or academic outcomes.
University of Pennsylvania-Affiliated Research: ARC
works with Dr. Michael Nakkula, of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School
of Education, for ARC's most rigorous research. Our most recent
research, presented at the SRA conference in Washington, D.C., highlighted the
relationship between match characteristics and academic outcomes.
Mentoring Surveys: The
Match Characteristics Questionnaire (MCQ) and the Youth Mentoring Survey
(YMS) are among
the strongest and most comprehensive match quality surveys available. They
measure internal match quality (between the youth/adult), external match
quality (other influences on the match), the match activities focus.
Design & Development: ARC
helps mentoring programs make stronger matches that last longer.
ARC partners with Kathleen Murphy, President and CEO of Yavapai Big Brothers
Big Sisters, to provide outstanding program design and development support
reflecting three decades of experience and leadership in mentoring.
