Report on the evaluation of a voluntary service for young people in Southern Germany called "FSJ auszeit". The service is meant as a "timeout" for young people on the verge of dropping out of secondary school. The volunteering can be done to interrupt a school career that is risking to fail for a diversity of reasons.
The evaluation of the service researched the reasons for young people to take up the service and followed the participants through to see whether the service has helped them to take up education again.
