Volunteers are offered the opportunity to run classes and to get involved with a unique priject that has a real, positive impact on the local community in DIadema. Teaching English can help local children to reach their potential and it increases their chances of securing a good job when they are older. The youth centre provides a fun, experience for all volunteers who are willing to get stuck! If you are up for the challenge- get involved. In the meantime, take a look at how reading is coming to life in Brazil.
