Fondacion Forge

September 18, 2010 │ Buenos Aires, Argentina

Deutsche Bank employees share knowledge about work and life experiences with students.

Fifteen Deutsche Bank employees spent their Saturday morning at Fondacion Forge, a non-profit organization that provides work and life skills training to prepare low-income high school students for better opportunities.

One hundred and twenty two youngsters participated in the event. The day consisted of an opening speech by Marcelo Blanco, Chief Country Officer of Argentina, followed by panel discussions on different topics. At each panel, employees shared stories focusing on values such as discipline, perseverance, tolerance, work ethic and commitment. Because the volunteers were of different ages and backgrounds, they offered the students a variety of perspectives on work and life.

The message of the event was that it does not matter what your social or economic background is; as long as you are motivated and have the will to overcome challenges, you can accomplish your goals. Agustin Niebuhr, from the Legal Advisory department said: "I felt that I was able to inspire those teenagers in one of the biggest challenges of their lives."
