In this presentation/poster we will present findings from a study for a nonprofit organization working with at-risk Colorado youth. The purpose of the study is to assess the quality of the mentoring of high school students who seek or are advised to get support to stay in school. The data collected include Likert-scale variables from at least three time points regarding the effectiveness of the program. We performed multiple regression and a time series analysis to address the questions of interest. The statistical analysis should show that the high school students' well-beings are improving overtime.
