The Verein

The JFKS Verein, Society of Parents and Friends of the John-F-Kennedy-School of Berlin e.V., is a state-registered charitable organization committed to supporting the program of excellence at the JFKS.

We are proud of our 50-year history as an independent but integral part of the JFKS community, working closely with the administration, teachers and students to maintain the exceptional educational and cultural environment of JFKS.

The Verein was founded in 1962 shortly after the opening of the school by parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the JFKS. Since then its goal has been to support the excellent learning environment at the JFKS.

In order to supplement the school budget provided by the Berlin Senate, the Verein raises funds through membership fees and a variety of projects. These funds support the bilingual, bicultural and unique program at JFKS, thereby preparing students for success in a global world.
