Abstract: After – by adapting Kurt Hahn's idea of an “education state” to the Award work - the first student mentoring system had been established in Osterburken in 2002, more and more Operators are now following suit. In 2018, the first nationwide course for student mentors and young leaders took place in Osterburken, the first student mentors took part in the Management Course and a cooperation on the topic was agreed with the DofE Scotland. In the workshop, the concept will be presented, participating schools and student mentors will share their experiences and steps for implementation will be discussed.
