Our projects in the field of education


Berliner Lesepaten

BERLINER LESEPATEN was founded by the VBKI in 2005 to strengthen social commitment engagement in Berlin and open up prospects for socially disadvantaged children and young people. It is now Berlin's largest volunteer project in the field of education. Every week, over 2,000 reading mentors spend several hours in Berlin schools and daycare centers. With their voluntary work, they strengthen the individual reading and learning skills of over 12,000 children and young people every week - and at the same time prepare them for the future.

Focus on student performance

Berlin ranks at the bottom of almost all comparative studies on pupil performance, followed only by Bremen. With a new pilot project, the VBKI and the Senate Education Department want to help improve the quality of schools in Berlin. The focus: pupil performance.



Kids Fit for Europe

Since 2003, the VBKI has supported the "Kids fit for Europe" language competition, which recognizes pupils from Berlin's state European schools. The VBKI donates prizes worth a total of 5,000 euros each year. The language competition is aimed at pupils from state European schools - each year the focus is on a different language combination.
