Training posts remain unfilled because many high school students are not aware of what jobs are available and which would suit them. The project “Appointed heroes – learning through engagement for career opportunities” (“Berufene Helden – Lernen durch Engagement für Chancen im Beruf”) codeveloped by Deutsche Bahn Foundation and the Learning Foundation (Stiftung Lernen) works to bridge the gap between school and the workplace. The students organize a project themselves, which enables them to acquire specific abilities and skills. The nationwide consolidation and deployment of the project has begun.
Together with the Association of Social and Cultural Migrant Associations in Dortmund (Verbund der sozial-kulturellen Migrantenvereine in Dortmund; VMDO e.V.), Deutsche Bahn Foundation is also supporting women of refugee and migration backgrounds with their professional integration.
