DEUTSCHE BANK How digital volunteering breaks down barriers
Social commitment is possible anywhere and anytime - regardless of location, time and personal skills. The partnership between Volunteer Vision and Deutsche Bank shows how this can work and how employees can support socially disadvantaged youths and young adults worldwide through online mentoring.
Deutsche Bank is Germany's largest credit institution with branches all over the world. The company is committed to economic growth, but also to social progress.
Frankfurt am Main, Germany
How can employees worldwide be inspired to get involved in social issues?
As part of its corporate social responsibility measures, Deutsche Bank launched the "Born to Be" program, which bundles various educational initiatives for children and young people worldwide. Education is the basic prerequisite for social development and a means for people to escape poverty. The mentoring program now desired was to fit perfectly into the education portfolio and support socially disadvantaged youth. The particular challenge: The solution had to enable measurable results, as well as be scalable so that it could be used company-wide and by all employees regardless of location.

With the help of our digital mentoring platform, hundreds of Deutsche Bank employees were able to support teenagers and young adults in their preparation for their professional lives. Virtual volunteering is now successfully used by Deutsche Bank in over 13 countries. Our partnership, which has been in place since 2016, is also constantly adapting to new situations: In the wake of the Covid 19 crisis, for example, new online mentoring supports are launched to help schoolchildren and young female students to catch up on missed parts of their curricula.
Online mentoring not only supports mentees - mentors also benefit: They develop their social skills and identify measurably stronger with their company.
