Streghtening Leaderships Through Education
Fundação Affonso Brandão Hennel endorses Fundação Poder Jovem in the development of the Educational Leaders Seminar that consists of a seminar for school principals and pedagogical coordinators aimed at opening a discussion, clarifying and helping them in solving everyday life issues related to adolescence, more specifically in public schools. It is also aimed at the prevention of great impact issues at this age, such as pregnancy, sexual transmitted diseases, and sexuality, with a focus on breaking the intolerance walls related to these issues.
Midwest Regional Board of Education of the city of São Paulo, which is part of the São Paulo Education Department, partnered with Fundação Poder Jovem so that principals and pedagogical coordinators from 75 public schools could attend this seminar and contribute to spreading its purport.
Main expert figures from the different areas addressed in the seminar were invited and art performances raised awareness about these issues. The Ministry of Health sent an official to address the Aids issue in Brazil, its background and how this disease is affecting teenagers.
This rich subject matter taken to more than 200 public education leaders will be reproduced in their schools, having a direct impact on over 3400 teachers and an indirect impact on over 56.000 students.
