The goal of the project is to provide an active support for pupils during the progress of occupational orientation. This is why the project enables a realistic contact with various vocations. In the centre of this is hands-on experience, where pupils shall gain a realistic impression of the respective vocations in order to position their own occupational future. Additionally the systematic survey of teachers, pupils, parents and instructors ought to assist in promoting successful occupational choices in young people.

IRIS Newsletter 1/2007 published
Youth and Participation is the topic of the latest IRIS Newsletter. Participation of chidren and young people has become the number one topic in youth policies. But, what does it mean? Who is participating in what? Does participation make a difference with regard to social integration or is it just a cover-up of the exclusion of young people from decisions that concern them? The new IRIS newsletter is dealing with these questions before the background of current and past IRIS projects (in German language).
