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):
