The leading international parcel delivery and logistics provider, Deutsche Post DHL and the German non-profit organisation, Teach First Deutschland have decided to continue their partnership for another three years. Being the main sponsor, DHL actively supported the education programme since 2009.

Teach First Deutschland primarily focusses on placing “fellows” in schools in socially disadvantaged parts of a city. 60 graduates currently provide teaching support at schools throughout the states of North Rhine Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Hamburg and Thüringen. The placements are restricted to two years of teaching.

When working at the schools, fellows engage in a range of activities such as leading various-sized project or afterschool groups as well as providing one-on-one teaching assistance. In addition to the that, students taught by Fellows have the opportunity to join DHL’s Camp4us summer camp where they can participate in a variety of multi-disciplinary projects.

“Education is the key to shaping the future of individuals and society. It is only logical for Deutsche Post DHL to promote the education of young people by supporting such initiatives as Teach First Deutschland and the education of young people – especially those people whose start in life may have been less fortunate”, said Rainer Wend, Head of Policy and Corporate Responsibility at Deutsche Post DHL.

Starting in February 2012, 18 additional fellows are going to join schools in Nordrhein-Westphalia and Baden-Württemberg.

Ulf Matysiak, head of Teach First Deutschland, has content about the project with parcel delivery giant DHL:
 “As the largest main sponsor and a reliable partner, Deutsche Post DHL not only offers financial support to our charitable organisation but also their own energetic and personal dedication.”
