Interns are assigned to favela (slum) work projects best suited to their respective skills, interests and personality. This could be in Rio, Paraty or São Paulo. Duration of internships may vary from 10 – 12 weeks depending on student’s availability. Accommodation may be with a host family or rented apartment. BRAYCE covers all travel and living expenses, and provides a modest stipend for each student. Typical work assignments include teaching after school activities in the visual arts, dance, theatre, mentorship, media, crafts, music, sports, supporting a percussion class and teaching English. Whenever possible, interns will be given the opportunity to work in more than one project. Ages of favela children vary between 6-16 years. When not working or preparing lesson plans, interns are free to enjoy Brazilian life and culture.
