    Abstract

    The ‘What makes an effective role model program?’ research project was commissioned by the National Youth Affairs Research Scheme (NYARS) to explore the extent and use of role model programs and their effectiveness, and to inform the development of role model programs for young people. The specific objectives were to:

    • undertake a literature search and audit of role model programs targeting young people 12–25 years (from a diversity of cultural, linguistic and socioeconomic backgrounds), delivered by various groups in educational and community settings, in both Australia and overseas;

    • explain what makes a role model program effective or not effective in stimulating the changes for young participants;

    • evaluate the effectiveness or otherwise of role model programs in terms of their objectives and corresponding outcomes;

    • identify and analyse key aspects of an effective role model program; and

    • provide advice on improving the effectiveness of programs to stimulate the desired changes for young people.
