Abstract
  • Using data from the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, I test multiple theories of social capital to determine which aspects of social capital lead to greater educational outcomes in a dyadic relationship. The results indicate that time spent together is the most significant and positive indicator, and is moderated by racial homogeneity of the dyad.
