This study explores young people's perceptions of mentoring relationships and proposes a typology of mentoring forms. A sample of 150 adolescents was interviewed both in groups (n=12 groups of up to 13 young people) and individually (n=30 individuals recruited from the group interviews). Results suggested that a range of forms of mentoring were perceived as valuable by different groups of young people and from these a typology of mentoring forms is devised.
