BRAZIL ... Welcome to a Tropical Paradise!


Brazil seems to embody everything that is best in South America; the world’s largest rainforest, thousands of miles of glorious beaches; an array of natural and cultural wonders and world heritage sites. Cities include heart stopping Rio de Janeiro; sprawling, metropolitan Sao Paulo; and further north, the entrancing canals and bustling piers of Recife, ‘the Venice of Brazil’.

You can volunteer on programmes in Rio de Janeiro and also on the beautiful Island of Florianopolis (where Brazilians go on their holidays!).

CAN'T CHOOSE? Call our Brazil Project Consultant, Karen Herring, for free advice on which Project would be best for you. +44 (0)1903 502595

Teach Children on this very Unusual Project on the Island of Florianopolis
This project is very unusual in that you won't teach in a school - rather, you'll work in a Centre that provides unorthodox learning outside of the school environment. Lessons are unique and great fun! You'll teach a variety of subjects to children, while keeping them off the streets during non-school hours.
You'll have the freedom to teach almost any type of subject, including basing lessons around your own culture, country and way of life back home.
