These pieces of artwork, drawn by a young child at the workshop, shows their appreciation of the event. I particularly like the scary eyes!
There is nothing more fulfilling than teaching children how to love and appreciate music. Whatever genre you play or whatever style of dancing you are good at, the kids at the youth centre would love the opportunity to learn a new skill. The youth centre helps 3000 local youth and are one of the most successful charities in Brazil, having won awards for their work. Volunteers help to keep sessions and workshops exciting and varied. You can volunteer at the youth centre or as a sports coach for as little as 4 weeks up to 6 months. Accommodation and food is provided at the centre, meaning you will feel truly part of this wonderful community. You can also opt to add portuguese lessons so you too can come away with a fantastic new skill. For more information, check out our volunteering at a youth centre page or our volunteering as a sports coach page. If you are enthusiastic, committed and passionate, we would love to get you involved in this worthwhile programme.
