Join EduMais to volunteer in Rio de Janeiro and change the lives of at-risk children and teenagers in the favelas. By volunteering with us, you’ll teach, guide, and have a lasting impact on our talented students.
At EduMais, we are proud to have a committed team of international volunteers. Many join us to volunteer abroad for a few months; others live in Rio de Janeiro permanently. The diversity of our volunteers’ backgrounds gives our kids a window into many worlds.
And the kids give our volunteers a window into theirs. They appreciate what their volunteer teachers do for them: prepare yourself for smiles, hugs, and tears when you leave!
Volunteers are strictly selected, and their backgrounds are screened to protect EduMais’s children. If successful, they are trained in our Positive Discipline methodology before joining our free volunteering programs.
Once they arrive in Rio, our volunteers teach and share their knowledge with our children, giving the best of themselves every day.
What’s more, they also get a lot back. Volunteering in the favelas in Brazil is a fantastic opportunity to grow and learn; the experience is life-changing for both our kids and volunteers.
And if you can’t make it to Rio, you can still contribute at a distance. We always need help with social media, grant writing, and administrative tasks,
