Educational Christian institution that provides not only education for children aged 4-6 but also workshops for girls aged 7 to 14 and social opportunities to adolescents from 14 to 18 years old. It is a very well organized and structured place, sponsored by the local church community. One of its main aims is to try to make adolescents get a political and critical consciousness in order to become greater and more responsible Brazilian citizens.
The volunteer will be involved with recreational activities and might also be joining workshops such as embroidery, painting, needlework, dancing and English classes with the girls or even giving computing classes to teenager boys. According to volunteer experiences and skills, it offers several proposals of activities that can be developed.

What will I get out of my "ICYE experience"
Through ICYE's long and short-term exchange programmes, young people can be part of a unique international educational experience that combines intercultural learning with voluntary service opportunities. By living aboard with a family or residential project and working in local community development organisations, ICYE volunteers are provided an intercultural experience providing opportunities for learning, self-awareness and global education. Our participants acquire cross cultural skills and problem solving abilities, for their personal and professional development. ICYE helps them to share their experiences, hopes and dreams, and make life-long friendships with people from another country as well as with other international volunteers.
