WHAT WE DO
Ensina Brasil recruits, selects and trains talented young graduates from the best universities in the country to become full-time teachers in high-need public schools for at least two years. During their time in the classroom, they develop as future leaders in order to multiply their impact inside and beyond the classroom in order to transform educational opportunities for all children in Brazil.
Ensina Brasil is a non-profit organization which aims to mobilize diverse talent and develop young leaders to transform the educational system, beginning in the classroom.

Our mission is to empower a network of leaders who, beginning with a transformational experience as full-time teachers in the most vulnerable schools in the country, with on-going training, will develop the commitment and knowledge necessary to multiply their impact and generate greater opportunities for all.
We are part of the global Teach For All network, present in 58 countries, with 25 years of operation in the United States. Through the global network, our organization, teachers and alumni can share ideas and innovations across borders and adapt promising ideas to expand educational opportunities.
