Mayhew is an independent nonprofit program for boys which combines a residential summer program and school year mentoring. The six-year program, which is funded by the United Way, is tuition-free. It supports and challenges the 193 boys that it currently serves, as it has done for thousands of other New Hampshire boys since 1969. Mayhew enrolls boys from predominantly low-income, single parent families who are struggling with social and/or behavioral difficulties. Mayhew contracted with BHI in 2016 to develop and implement a fidelity measure.
This model shows Mayhew’s theory of change which guides the implementation of modeling, teaching, and practicing during the summer sessions and community phase.
