Who we are

The German Children and Youth Foundation (DKJS) advocates for success in education and participation in society of young people in Germany. Above all, those children and youths who are growing up in difficult circumstances are in the centre of attention. For this purpose, the German Children and Youth Foundation brings together players from government, economy, science, practice and civil society and jointly develops practical answers to current challenges in the education system.
