Vincentino e.V.was established in 2008 by Sandra Maischberger (a German television presenter) together with other media professionals with “culture strengthens kids in Berlin” as its motto. Since it was started, this initiative has brought cultural education projects to schools in Berlin. The people behind the organisation want to reach young people who otherwise have few chances to participate in cultural activates.
Vincentinomakes it possible for music- and media- based projects to reach young people in Berlin so that they are exposed to the arts. Sharing such experiences with others helps these children build a positive positive sense of themselves while also enabling them to learn about social competence. Schoolchildren can, in the process, expand their horizons and become aware of other perspectives. Especially gifted children are offered individual instruction as well.
Presently, the organisation works with ten instructors at ten schools in Neukölln, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, in close co-operation with teachers on site at the Adolf-Reichwein-Schule which specialises in supporting schoolchildren who need aditional assistance, the Albrecht-Dürer-Gymnasium (secondary school), the Grundschule am Regenweiher (primary) and Campus Efeuweg.
