"The scope and depth of scholarship and application pertinent to youth mentoring is masterfully integrated in this significant and timely resource. This handbook is a vital reference for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers concerned with the promotion of positive youth development."

"Handbook of Youth Mentoring provides excellent and remarkably comprehensive coverage of the theory, research, and practice. This volume provides researchers and practitioners with the most up-to-date knowledge on effective mentoring. It thoroughly covers different types of mentoring relationships, for different groups of youth, and in different institutional and program contexts. A must-have for anyone wanting to be up-to-date on mentoring."

"In my opinion, this book is a must for the field. I'm pleased that these two editors have taken on the challenge of pulling it together. They are quite ideally suited for the task. . . . I give it the very highest rating."

(Michael Nakkula 2004-09-30)

"Chapters offer researchers, practitioners, and policy makers recommendations and information encompassing many different types of mentoring relationships. They also address a variety of institutional and program contexts, from those such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters to the less formal, including faith-based and after-school youth programs. . . . This volume presents large amounts of information in a well organized, readable manner." (P.M. Socoski CHOICE 2006-02-01)

"The Handbook of Youth Mentoring presents the first comprehensive scholarly analysis of the rising number of nonprofit, business, and government mentoring initiatives. With practical recommendations for policymakers, practitioners, and researcher, as well as discussion of formal and informal mentoring programs, editors DuBois and Karcher explore the important relationships that affect millions of young people." (Ed. Summer 2006 2006-08-07)

"This book is therefore timely in that an urgent need exists for a clear sighted, comprehensive and inclusive unpacking of key themes and debates around mentoring" —YOUTH & POLICY
