Power within: Supporting academic success and leadership skills development for young adolescent girls through mentoring

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Under Power Within (PW), CARE's signature program which supports young adolescent girls in developing countries to complete their primary education and develop leadership skills, mentoring is encouraged in support of girls' academic success as well as navigating many of the life challenges they face during young adolescence. Through funding from Credit Suisse under its Global Education Initiative (GEI), CARE seeks to understand the role mentoring can play in positively affecting a range of social, emotional, behavioral, academic and career outcomes for children and youth, especially young adolescent girls. PW's conceptual framework consists of a theory of change that includes three domains and 10 pathways. Under the third domain of change, which entails advocating for the rights of girls, mentoring is a pathway for developing an enabling environment for girls to complete their primary education and develop leadership skills. The research will help CARE test the hypothesis under PW's framework that mentorship contributes to an enabling environment for young adolescent girls. The methodology to be used under this research includes a secondary literature review, expert informant interviews, and field testing of mentoring models with the final aim of developing a mentoring toolkit. The initial findings of the research will reveal whether young adolescent girls who receive mentoring are more likely to complete primary school and transition to post-primary options and develop leadership skills which allows them to address the life challenges they face.
