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.

IRIS e.V. is the scientific monitoring of the ESF – project “Praxiswerkstatt – Praxisorientierte Berufliche Kompetenzfeststellung” at Offenburg.
The project is a cooperation between the CCI BildungsZentrum and the Gewerbe Akademie Offenburg. It is financed by the ESF, the Federal Employment Agency and the Office of School and Education – Ortenau. 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 is partner in a project commissioned by the Ministry for Economy and Social Affairs of the Free State of Saxony. Together with the University of Hildesheim and IRIS e.V. Dresden, IRIS is working on a study on the future changes in the system of vocational guidance in this region of Germany.
IRIS’ part of the study consists of three international country studies on vocational guidance systems in Austria, Denmark and the UK.
