dc.description.abstractThis secondary data analysis was used to explore the impact of mentoring relationships on adolescent empathy. This research aimed to: (i) identify the role of mentoring relationships in adolescent perceived social support, (ii) explore the role of empathy in the experiences of youth in mentoring relationships, and (iii) disseminate the findings to inform policy through the creation of videos with young people currently involved in a mentoring programme. Data for this secondary data analysis originated from the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Ireland: Evaluation Study undertaken by the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, NUI Galway (Dolan et al., 2010). This was a mixed methods study consisting of a randomised control trial (n = 164) and nine longitudinal qualitative case studies of mentoring pairs, including the views of young people, mentors, mothers, and case workers. Objectives of the Study 1. Identify how mentoring relationships impact on adolescent perceived social support. 2. Explore the role of empathy in the experiences of youth in mentoring relationships. 3. Disseminate the findings to inform policy through the creation of videos with young people currently involved in a mentoring programme.en_IE
