The BHZ CONNECTION project’s main aim is to contribute to the educational development of young people and adolescents from low-income families by teaching languages including Portuguese and foreign languages (English, French, Spanish, etc…) as educational tools.
Using activities such as Drama, Capoeira Angola, art, educational games, reading, music and physical education the students learn other languages, thereby facilitating cultural exchange with volunteers from different countries.
ACCA aims to provide young people the experience with a cultural exchange between England and Brazil
ACCA offers cultural experiences to young people and includes learning activates, group work, sociability and social protection and which focuses on the establishment of one living space and working in participatory approach, the development of the autonomy of children and adolescents, from particular demands and potential presented by each.
We believe that if we provide a motivating environment, dynamic, cheerful, with meetings, studies, planning and reviews happening systematically, it is possible to guarantee children and adolescents’ rights to leisure and culture, contributing to the educational, emotional, professional and psychological development.
We are looking for committed student volunteers to create and run a Brazilian society in Manchester university. The aim of the society will be to promote and facilitate the cultural exchange programme between our grass root social project - BHZ Connection - in Brazil and the UK by organising social media campaigns, cultural & fundraising events in Manchester and activities (such as streamed languages classes). Ambassadors will provide a UK-based contact and pre-travel support to (student) volunteers going to work on the project in Belo Horizonte. Volunteers are currently needed for the social media team and the fundraising team. More details of the role will be given upon registering for the role.
This is a great opportunity for (a) dynamic person(s) to make a real difference to the beneficiaries of our social work, i.e. Brazilian children in the community in Belo Horizonte. You will need to work independently and communicate well with the project manager based in Brazil.
