Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Founded in 2016, EduMais is a nonprofit organization providing high-quality education to underprivileged children and teenagers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Motivated by the urge to prevent their many talents from going to waste, our educational programs empower at-risk young people in the Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favelas with the skills to build a future away from poverty, violence, and drugs. They have joined the Skills Builder Partnership to enhance the provision of classroom materials for an Entrepreneurs Course with 18 year olds.
