Abstract:

In October 2013, the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE), in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana (BBBS-KY), was ... to assess the impact of three types of parent/guardian factors -- parent-child dynamics, family dynamics, and parent/guardian involvement in mentoring matches -- influenced match length, the strength of the relationships between volunteer mentors and youth, and youth outcomes. The project utilized an intervention-only-pre--post design in which BBBS community-based and site-based programs were the intervention. Quantitative and qualitative data were collecte from youth, mentors, and parent-guardian in the BBBS-KY program at match and 12-months after match. These data were complemented by school record data from 16 area school districts and from data from the BBBS-KY AIM database.

We found that parent-youth relationship dynamics and parenting styles had a direct impact on youth attitudes toward risky behaviors. For youth in site-based matches, these factors also were related to academic performance, unexcused school absences, and school suspensions. We also found that while parent/guardian involvement in match relationships influences strength of relationship ratings, it does not appear to influence youth/program outcomes directly. However, relationships between parents/guardians and volunteer influence both the strength of mentoring relationships developed and two key youth outcomes -- attitudes toward risky behaviors and academic performance.
