What is the project about?
This internationally recognised centre, based in an urban suburb of Sao Paulo, has helped thousands of local children to develop new skills and to create positive friendships.
Youth Centre Volunteering
Past volunteers have taught anything from English to belly dancing so what ever your skill, you can help.
This is a great project for people with childcare experience as it provides a rewarding way to volunteer your expertise and to share your enthusiasm abroad. If you don’t have much experience yet, don’t worry – volunteers can use their initiative and personal skills to benefit the project. Our volunteers bring all sorts of talents with them, including a cook who made sushi! Past volunteers have enjoyed encouraging English in the conversational English club and have equally loved learning skills from the children and workers at the centre, such as Caporeira dancing.
If you are passionate about sport, and with so many sporting legends from Brazil, coaching sport in Brazil is one of the best things you could choose to do. Our volunteers work with a team that run classes in nearby sports facilities. Popular sports include football, rugby and athletics.
School hours in Brazil are very short, so many children miss out on the chance to exercise as part of the curriculum.
How does this benefit the children?
Children enjoy working with volunteers and are always enthusiastic to learn something new. Our projects help children learn new skills and boost their confidence. In turn this helps to boost their self-esteem.
Brazil is a vibrant country with so much to do and see. Famous for music, dancing, colour and carnivals, Brazil is a fun destination to explore. Sao Paulo and the beach are an hour away and Rio de Janiero is only a 50 minutes flight away. You can travel on your weekends and before or after your time volunteering. Visit the Iguacu Falls and even the Amazon.
Optional Portuguese lessons
There is an option to add 1-1 Portuguese lessons to your experience for an additional 230 Euros. This is amazing opportunity to learn a skill while volunteering abroad.
