Deutsche Bank and Offenbach Mentoring Program

Offenbach Mentoring Program: Paving the way to education

The Offenbach Mentoring Program paves the way for effective placement of lower secondary school students. More than 115 employees have served as mentors since 2005. Deutschbanker Joris Hensen for example supported his mentee Dardan Bunjaki for two years.

Worldwide, more than 2,800 employees volunteered as mentors in 2015. Their outside views can help access existing systems and structures, open new perspectives and inspire new approaches – it is a win-win situation for everyone involved.

Employees accompany their mentees for a minimum of one year – mostly longer – providing advice and assistance, helping with uncertainties or being a source of motivation. Their support can help young people in various life situations. For instance, Deutsche Bank employees help immigrants enter the German workforce, support young people with difficult career conditions find vocational training or a job and assist young students as a confidential counselor with their career orientation or help them prepare for college.

In particular, students and young people benefit from the engagement of Deutschbankers in numerous mentoring programs, often serving as role models or confidential counselors. Such support is especially important for youth and young adults in their orientation phase.

The guidance often results in long-standing relationships that are a win-win situation for both sides; employees gain valuable insights into worlds outside their professional lives to broaden their horizons.
