We are now recruiting interns to join our team in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We are looking for exceptional people that want to make a real difference in the lives of some amazing children. It is challenging, exhausting, emotional work, but for the right person highly rewarding! We recruit throughout the year on a rolling basis, but currently need volunteers for three weeks or more from mid-January- June 2018.

We operate a school that has an intensive early childhood education program (Jedi Academy). Our afternoon program is STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics About 60 children pass through our door every day. Our classes are free for the children. We need volunteer teachers that can bring creativity, dedication and passion to the classroom. Volunteer fees cover housing, transportation, and training, so you DO NOT need to be a teacher- we will train you to be a teaching ninja.

Please do contact us if you think you might want to be a part of our team- you can email us at projectfavela.1@gmail.com with potential dates and a resume or CV!
