dc.description.abstractCurrent policy emphasises the need for community involvement and inter-agency co-operation in youth crime prevention, as well as approaches that seek to strengthen the protective factors in young people’s lives, thus protecting them from crime. Mentoring interventions which are targeted at young people who are involved in the youth justice system are increasingly being recognised as a valuable preventative tool in the area of youth offending. Foróige, through collaboration with the Irish Youth Justice Service has adapted the Big Brothers Big Sisters youth mentoring programme for the youth justice context in Ireland in a programme known as BBBS-GYDP.
dc.description.sponsorshipThe authors would like to thank most sincerely everyone who took part in the research, staff members who helped with organising the fieldwork and the Irish Research Council and Foróige for funding the study.
