"Based on our study of mentoring programs in Minnesota, it is clear that such programs can produce some or all of the following direct benefits whose values can (in principle) be quantified:

  • Based on conservative assumptions about outcomes and valuations, our representative program returns benefits of $2.72 for every dollar of resources used.
  • The program returns $2.08 for every dollar of cost if the value of mentors’ time is excluded from the estimated benefits.
  • The program returns $1.87 of public benefits (public cost savings and increased tax revenues) for every dollar actually spent on the program."
