A child’s life is sadly not all fun and games. And sometimes it helps to have someone by your side.
Linn Schöllhorn is the founder and director of KinderHelden, a successful non-profit organization that aims to help and encourage disadvantaged children to reach their full potential. Her previous role as a regional manager for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Germany, showed her the amazing prospects of mentoring. For her, mentoring is about building bridges between different cultures and backgrounds, and thereby inspiring both children and mentors alike to broaden their horizons and work together to overcome obstacles and celebrate success. Before her engagement in the non-profit sector, Linn Schöllhorn worked in marketing, having taken a degree in business studies and English literature and linguistics at the University of Mannheim. She lives together with her husband and two children in the Rhein-Neckar region.
