Love art? Volunteering at a youth centre in Brazil is the perfect way to share your passion and teach art and crafts to disadvantaged children living in Sao Paulo. The youth centre is a hub of opportunities for the children in the local area. Through the medium of art and crafts, volunteers can give children the opportunity to boost their confidence, gain new skills and meet new friends. Positive role models and entertaining and proactive activities help to keep children off the streets and out of trouble. Check out the photos below to see how volunteers can make a difference with young people in the vibrant city of Sao Paulo.

Working at the youth centre in Brazil is a fantastic way to share your skills with children who are not given these opportunities in school. Whether you are skilled at designing and making new things, a fantastic artist or a master of the sewing kit, you can get involved and create your own classes to share your skills.
