Evaluation of the project “Ağabey-Abla”

Written by AP on . Posted in Evaluation of the project "Ağabey-Abla"

The mentoring prorgramme “Ağabey-Abla” is run by Deutsch-türkisches Forum Stuttgart e.V.  and funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation. In this mentoring program about 70 Turkish mentors accompany Turkish students particularly with regard to academic issues, but also on leisure activities. The evaluation aims at finding out how students with an immigrant background can be encouraged in an innovative way, and how the social engagement of young adults with an immigrant background can be used for this.

Project “Peer-Mentoring” is completed

The results of the evaluation have been published in a report.

IRIS e.V., in cooperation with the Institute of Education at the University of Tübingen, was entrusted with the evaluation of the mentoring project “Friends create success” (Caritas Stuttgart). Within the project, mentorship was conceptually designed as a “support of equals”. Based on a similar status by small age difference between the peer and the mentee, an innovative monitoring structure for young secondary school students was implemented.

Die Evaluation wurde im Dezember 2009 abgeschlossen. The evaluation results are available immediately in the download area:

Scientific monitoring of peer mentoring

Written by swalter on . Posted in Peer Mentoring

Since January 2008, IRIS in cooperation with the Institute of Education of the University of Tuebingen is in charge of the evaluation of the pilot project “Friends create success” in Stuttgart.

The objective of the project is to supply young people in the final stages of secondary school with support by other young people who have experienced similar difficulties. The peer mentors are recruited among alumni of the same secondary schools.

The evaluation focuses on the effects that this particular set-up has on the transition processes of the young people, but also on the differences between this approach and other mentoring systems.

The final report of the evaluation is available as a PDF file here (in German):
