The AIM Buddy Project Summary of Research Findings is here!

The AIM research study conducted throughout the 2015-2016 school year explored the impact of interactive media and cross-age mentoring on the promotion of prosocial skills and attitudes among elementary school students. Data was collected over the 2015-2016 school year in two diverse Massachusetts school districts and involved 90 teachers and 1,155 students. Highlights from the promising results include:

  • Little Buddies in high fidelity programs had statistically significant increases in their empathy, future-mindedness, and positive perceptions of their classroom climate.
  • Both Little and Big Buddies in high fidelity classrooms had statistically significant increases in their levels empathy and tolerance.
  • Both Little and Big Buddies participants were four times more likely to show a better understanding of honesty and two and a half times more likely to show a better understanding of forgiveness and learning from others.
