Our partnership with the "Beyond Basics" program is helping public school children in the Detroit metropolitan area to discover their strengths and talents. Through special courses that promote academic excellence and expand the participants’ horizons, the program provides at-risk children and teenagers with assistance and additional educational opportunities.
Another education program that opens up new opportunities for needy children is "Rally to Read", in which employees from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services South Africa have been involved for the past 12 years. For this project, colleagues visit remote and needy rural schools, where they distribute books and other instructional materials.
"My Money, My Life." is a European education program aiming to train teens on their personal attitude towards money: How does it feel to ask for money? How does it feel to spend money? How can I avert debts? All this is part of the workshops which are given by DFS students and young professionals.
