This program offers a foreign high school students the unique opportunity to spend one or two school semesters in a carefully selected private or public Brazilian High School, where the student will attend classes and participate in all the activities like any other Brazilian student.
The student will spend the entire program with a screened local host family – also selected by Experimento Brazil – where he/she is expected to be a member.
These two sites (home and school) are the base of the program and will help make this exchange experience a successful and rewarding one.
Experimento Brazil would like to introduce you to a multicultural nation of creative, vibrant and warm people. You are invited to live and work with people influenced by African, Native American, European and Asian cultures.
Although Brazil is the ninth richest economy in the world, it is one of the poorest in terms of human development. Volunteers can make a difference by working with non-governmental organizations throughout the country. Social service projects in Natal, education projects in Florianopolis and in Monte Alegre do Sul are among the possibilities.
