CLAYSS

Centro Latinoamericano de Aprendizaje y Servicio Solidario

Service-learning dissemination programme in Brazil

 

Born in 2017, this program aims to work on the promotion and expansion of the pedagogical proposal of solidarity service-learning in the Brazilian educational system. We participated in the foundation of the Brazilian Network of Solidary Learning in November 2017, supporting through actions of teacher training, onsite and virtual, participation in educational congresses in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre, scholarships to the International Seminars of Service-Learning in Argentina and in the development of specific pedagogical materials for Brazil. In 2019, the Network organized the First Solidary Learning Seminar in Brazil, together with the Escola do Parlamento de Sao Paulo, CENPEC, Instituto Singularidades, OEI and other members. In addition, Regional Solidarity Learning Meetings are being held in various parts of the country, such as Minas Gerais, Maranhao, Pernambuco and Porto Alegre. In 2020, CLAYSS will participate in the organization and evaluation of the first national prize for solidary learning in Brazil, in addition to executing a program of direct support to five schools that carry out solidary educational practices.
