ETIV is offering a fantastic new opportunity in 2023 for children wanting to learn about how their government works and how the laws work in Brazil. The objective of this program is theoretical and practical knowledge to students so that, knowing their rights and duties, they can fully exercise their right to citizenship, as well as provide the cultivation of an environmental and social awareness in a sustainable way. Also, we hope to integrate young people into society and develop a sense of belonging to the community in which they are inserted, sowing interest in social participation, critical consciousness, empathy, and solidarity. In sum, we want to help young people become agents of change within their communities. The target audience is high school students between the ages of 12 and 17 years old. 

Importance of the role:

One of the reasons why this is so important, is because rarely do young people have the chance to learn about their judicial system. This program offers a free opportunity to be more aware of the possibilities of action one can have on their communities, which is very interesting for smaller and poorer areas. 

You will be teaching topics  like Constitutional Law, such as fundamental rights, duties and guarantees of the citizen, as well as organization and functioning of the state.

Furthermore, we will be discussing Human rights topics, such as sustainability and the environment, the Statutes of the child and adolescent, the Statute of the elderly, citizenship exercise, etc.

The classes will be taught using theoretical principles and practical workshops that will stimulate critical thinking and logical argumentation of students through debates and other activities. Alos, we would like to propose visits to governmental establishments. 

Main Responsibilities:

  • To support development of the curriculum while also preparing the lesson plans and documenting everything so that it can be re-used and built upon in the future.
  • To take attendance and document outcomes including successes, challenges, and best practices for every class.
  • To teach many of the core values that lay the foundation for ETIV's work, also listed on our website.
  • To assist the Law program coordinator

Secondary responsibilities:

An important value at Etiv, is to allow the volunteer to grow and make use of all the strengths one may have. Therefore, we encourage all our volunteers to participate in our many projects and sometimes even create their own. You will need to assist in other programs if needed and participate in our monthly events. For example, we always plan a World Day event.
