Youth ages 14 to 20 in a specialized foster care program for refugee minors without family in the U.S. are matched with adult mentors from the community for weekly contact of at least one hour. Youth opinion is solicited as part of the mentor matching process, including the suggestion of mentors from youth themselves. Mentors go through a screening and training process and commit to being a mentor for at least one year. Mentors also keep a log of their contact with youth; this information is also available to case managers. Youth and mentors participate in separate monthly support group meetings with the mentor coordinator. Youth who have been in the U.S. for six months or less participate in a group twice per month for more intensive support.
