We care about underprivileged children and young people living in favelas in Rio de Janeiro, teach them valuable life & academic skills and foster their character and development towards becoming positive members of their community.
At EduMais we are proud to have a very committed international team of volunteers. A team of volunteers willing to bring the best out of themselves and to teach children/youngsters with love, and attention to share their knowledge.
Our (inter)national volunteers are strictly selected, had a background screening and have been trained in our methodology: Positive Discipline. Competences and skills are complementary to each other.
Our motivated volunteers take pride in what they do and like to make a difference.
You are as passionate about these kids-at-risk and young people living in underprivileged circumstances as we are. Do you want to use your skills to make the difference? Our kids need the support and guidance of someone who loves education, loves to teach, and loves them.
Your Portuguese level
Your level of Portuguese needs to be on a good intermediate level. We can recommend you Caminhos Language Centre, it is the closest language school in our neighborhood. They offer courses for different levels for reasonable pricing.
