Join EduMais as a 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 offer love to our underprivileged but talented students. Your support and guidance will have a lasting impact on them.
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!
To protect our kids, our volunteers are strictly selected via our application process. They also have their backgrounds screened. 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 not just for our kids but our volunteers too.
