Uni-Cleverlinge – Heroes, how children need them!

Educational opportunities still depend to a great extent on the educational biography of the own family. If parents went to a secondary school, the chance that their children will also attend such a school is six times higher. Other children, however, struggle to reach a secondary school diploma. This makes it very important to support children in primary school individually and continuously. For this reason, the Kinderhelden gGmbH, the Mannheim Mozart School and the University of Mannheim Business School have teamed up to create a special project: A group of 40 children in the third and fourth grade, before the transition to secondary school, is supported by a learning guide.
