Children's Project

With a differentiated focus on Early Childhood Education, the Jaú Center (Núcleo Jaú) serves 120 students, from 4 months to 5 years old, on a full-day schedule. The center is recognized by the Ministry of Education (MEC), and the students complete their first phase of school with educational and pedagogical development. From 6 to 10 years old, the center offers 100 spots for further education. During non-school hours, students have the opportunity to learn other subjects such as: computer science, reading and writing, performing arts, health and environment, citizenship, and school supervision, among others. The work done with our students is based on psychosocial development and brings positive results to the benefited community.

Youth Project

The project uses an innovative pedagogical methodology aiming to boost socially vulnerable young people (14 to 16 years old) so that they can make professional discoveries and lead their own paths to the future. Every year, about 600 public school students are part of a 12-month program, during non-school hours, in which they go through three modules that address self-knowledge, talent, and vocational discovery, building dreams and professional references and planning for the years to come. In the end, they come out with an individual development plan and a five-year mentoring program.

The Raízen Foundation intends to share the methodology with other entities and partners, opening new centers that will inspire the lives of 10,000 young people by 2024.
