180 Grad Wende R


“180 Grad Wende R” is a model project that has been funded by the “Bundesministerium für Familie, Senioren, Frauen und Jugend”, since 2015. The aim of the project is to reach young people who are in danger of becoming radicalised, at an early stage and to provide them with concrete assistance.  For this purpose, the peer-to-peer approach is used, in which young people become active themselves and mentor other young people. The main focus of the project is on training multipliers and cooperating with police and other municipal organisations. The tasks include recognising signs of emerging radicalisation, social isolation, addiction or criminality. The approach of the multipliers promises a high level of success, as they act as role models for young people in critical situations.

Therefor they introduced “digital streetwork”, where young people can contact the organisation through Whatsapp to talk about their problems and fears. On the website of “180 Grad Wende R”, they are writing that the feedback on this service is highly positive. Number to contact: +49 221 16832209
