Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the level of self-esteem of children involved in mentoring programs. A survey research design was used to determine if there was a statistically significant relationship between the level of self-esteem of children involved in mentoring programs. The variables that were used were independent variable, self-esteem and dependent variable, mentoring programs. Purposive sampling of 50 children was conducted. Twenty-five of the boys and girls have been in the program for six months to a year and twenty-five of the boys and girls have been in the program for at least two years. The findings indicated that there was a statistically significant relationship between years of involvement at the Boys and Girls Club in relation to the level of self-esteem of children between the ages of 8-15 years old.
