The thematic-content framework of the project is to explore ways in which youth and young adults with disabilities can be supported in passing on their skills. In doing so, the perception of one’s own digital competencies is to be built up and further developed in a strength-oriented manner, and these competencies are to be transmitted to other people who do not yet have them. In this way, the self-confidence, self-esteem and communication skills of the young people concerned should also be developed and support provided for career orientation. In the course of the research project, approaches, technologies and forms of interaction are to be described and tested which support this transfer so that this can take place structurally and possibly institutionally. Both the adolescents and young adults will benefit, as the structured transfer can promote self-esteem and communication skills, and the recipients, whose digital skills will be strengthened.
