We are delighted to present the Annual Report of Cidade Escola Aprendiz featuring our actions, efforts and the results achieved in 2015.

Enjoy your reading!

CIDADE ESCOLA APRENDIZ

The Cidade Escola Aprendiz Association, created in 1997 in São Paulo, is an OSCIP (Public Interest Civil Society Organization) based in this city and with a branch in Rio de Janeiro.

Cidade Escola Aprendiz was responsible for the creation of Bairro-escola (Neighborhood School), a social program recognized by UNICEF as an education model to be replicated worldwide and that has become a reference for the formulation of integral education policies in Brazil, in particular the Escola Integrada (Integrated School) program in the city of Belo Horizonte, the Neighborhood School program in Nova Iguaçu, the Oficina do Saber (Knowledge Workshop) program in Sorocaba and Mais Educação (More Education), a national program of the Ministry of Education.

Moreover, Cidade Escola Aprendiz and its initiatives have received awards from a number of national and international organizations such as the Banco do Brasil Foundation, the Brazilian Ministry of Education, Harvard University and WISE (World Innovation Summit for Education), which named Cidade Escola Aprendiz one of the 16 most innovative organizations in the world.

Cidade Escola Aprendiz is recognized as an organization that works with the perspective of an education that is inclusive and emancipatory. It currently works on programs that operate in various cities across the country, researching and sharing national and international experiences, supporting the integration of actions and agents from different sectors, producing and releasing reference material, methodologies and instruments, organizing training for educators and social leaders, and contributing to the crafting and implementation of public policies.

EDITORIAL

Since its foundation, Cidade Escola Aprendiz has been driven by an essential idea: all people are capable of learning and they learn effectively in different places, with different people and throughout their whole lives. For us, therefore, education is not limited to the school, but it extends to life in the city and, as a fundamental human right, it should become a collective responsibility.

Our experience with the Neighborhood School program has taught us essentially two things. First, the diversity of interactions with languages, people and places dramatically assists the learning and the development of the learners. In this process, not only is their social and cultural repertoire expanded, but their autonomy to find the resources necessary for their future projects is strengthened significantly over time. Second, working within a network of institutions and professionals responsible for the learners fosters an environment of belonging and security. As such, instead of an institutionalization that creates dependency, Cidade Escola Aprendiz serves as a mediator between the learners and the city, developing their autonomy and the sense of responsibility of the entire community.

Cidade Escola Aprendiz arose from a highly local action, from a commitment to the development of a territory and with the perspective of becoming a reference and rethinking issues such as education, the city and engaged communication on social topics.

It is based on these lessons that we have been working for 18 years to address a wide range of challenges that impact so many people’s lives: the lack of knowledge and recognition by institutions about their lives and identities, the disjointed sectoral policies, the violation of all manner of rights, the restricted access to the city’s cultural heritage and the multiple social, economic and spatial inequalities that underpin the vulnerability to which many people are still exposed.

Therefore, in all the projects that we develop we build strategies based on our principles: focus on the interests and needs of the learners in all stages, in-depth understanding of their lives and identities, development of educational practices that nurture their autonomy, recognition of human and social potential and strong coordination between agents and local institutions.

 

Our experience presents very powerful strategies, especially for the development of children, adolescents and young people, and for the development of the city as a democratic space of inclusion and social participation.

The following premises guide us in our projects: support for the management of integral education policies, educating cities and human rights; training for teachers and public administrators in projects geared towards childhood and youth protagonism and intergenerationality; and combating the problem of out-of-school children and child labor.

This is how we have actively participated in the integral education movement, the international educating cities movement and the international children-in-school movement, through direct dialogue in the territories, with schools, families, public officials, governments and national and international foundations.
We are grateful to all our friends and partners for their trust and support and we invite you to discover the results of our work in 2015!

PROGRAMS

Aluno Presente

The Aluno Presente (Pupil Present) program is part of the international initiative Educate a Child of the Qatar-based Education Above All Foundation, which is present in 40 countries. Its mission is to ensure the right to a basic education for all children in the city of Rio de Janeiro aged 6 to 14.

SOCIAL MOBILIZATION

To achieve its goals, the project mobilizes and engages, in a cross-sectoral manner, families, educators, school staff, public bodies and local institutions through a team of professionals who go to different neighborhoods across the city visiting homes, residents associations, health centers, small businesses and community organizations.

In partnership with the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Education Department, the project works primarily on the identification and location of out-of-school children in order to return them to the municipal education system. It also monitors these pupils once they are back in school to prevent them from dropping out again, through direct dialogue with school administrators with a view to accommodating the children and also monitoring their time at school.

The project is a pioneering experience in Brazil and since October 2013 it has identified 13,395 out-of-school children aged 6 to 14 and enrolled 11,010 of them in local schools. By the end of 2016, the goal is to get 21,000 children back into school and strengthen the protection network that is necessary so that all the children and families in vulnerable situations identified by the project can have their basic rights assured.

Working strategies:

1
Socio-territorial diagnosis
2
Active search for out-of-school children
3
Mobilization and engagement on the local level
4
Mobilization of young people and their schools to stop children dropping out

5

CROSS-SECTORAL WORKING GROUP

One of the main results of the project is the cross-sectoral engagement that exists within the municipal government involving the Departments of Education, Health and Social Development, which produces an integrated working strategy by the public authorities in the territories with the greatest occurrence of out-of-school children and establishes the conditions for its sustainability via public policy.

SOCIO-TERRITORIAL DIAGNOSIS

In-depth understanding of the profile of the out-of-school children and their location in the city by conducting a technical socio-territorial diagnosis and sharing this knowledge with the entire network of social workers in the city.

MONITORING AND ASSESSMENT

The Monitoring and Assessment System accompanies and systematizes the goals and the results achieved throughout the whole process and it consists of an innovative and large-scale database. The database displays georeferenced information in the city of Rio de Janeiro of the children who are either out of school or at risk of dropping out.

It is fed systematically by the “Active Search” strategy and by the efforts inside the schools to stop children dropping out and it can, at any time, generate reports, indicators and key data for the development of the project and for training and systematization processes.

INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON INTEGRAL EDUCATION: PRACTICES FOR AN EDUCATING CITY (RIO DE JANEIRO)

On June 10 and 11, the International Seminar on Integral Education: Practices for an Educating City was held in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The event, organized by the Reference Center and by the Action and Social Innovation Movement (MAIS), was attended by 540 people from 18 Brazilian states as well as international guests, with representatives from the local governments of Rosário (Argentina) and Barcelona (Spain). Also present were representatives from the Ministry of Education, the Minas Gerais State Education Department, the Latin American School of Social Sciences (Flacso), the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Education Department, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, the University of São Paulo, Move, the Itaú Social Foundation, the SM Foundation and the Inspirare Institute. The event was also used to launch the In Practice website and the In Practice Kit.

Educating Cities

The program aims to strengthen the social demand for Educating Cities in Brazil through projects and experiences with a view to integration between communities, schools and territories. The program runs strategic actions for building a city geared towards the integral development of individual people.

The concept of integral education is directly related to the idea of educating cities, wherein territories – urban or rural – have their management geared entirely towards guaranteeing the integral development of their inhabitants. Accordingly, an Educating City discovers talents and invests in the potential of its communities, while focusing on an ongoing educational action that answers to everyone.

HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION CENTER

Human Rights Education Centers (HRECs), developed from a partnership between the Municipal Department of Human Rights and Citizenship and the São Paulo Municipal Education Department with funding from the Human Rights Office of the Presidency of the Republic, are intended to ensure the implementation of a Human Rights Education in the municipal education system, as part of a territorial strategy for building citizenship.

The purpose of the HRECs is to disseminate a culture of promoting human rights in the city of São Paulo, serving as permanent hubs of Human Rights Education in the territories where they are located. Planned to reinforce the engagement between school and community, the HRECs develop actions that involve the community’s different spaces and agents, thereby strengthening civic awareness and the concept of educating cities.

Two partner organizations supported the implementation of the project: Cidade Escola Aprendiz, which helped craft the policy through educational coordination and through assessment and monitoring, and the Vladmir Herzog Institute, which was responsible for the structured training processes, preparing educational material and advising the participating schools.

WHERE THE CENTERS ARE LOCATED

The HRECs operate from 4 Unified Education Centers and their 12 schools, in addition to two “satellite” units, which cover the 4 macroregions of São Paulo: São Rafael Center (East Side), Jardim Paulistano Center (North Side), Pera-Marmelo Center (West Side) and Casa Blanca Center (South Side).

CITIZENSHIP TRAILS

The project Trilhas da Cidadania – A língua portuguesa pela cidade (Citizenship Trails – Portuguese language around the city) was set up in 2012 with the goal to help integrate immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers into the city of São Paulo, through Portuguese language teaching and knowledge production on Brazilian culture and civic awareness.

It was conceived and implemented by Cidade Escola Aprendiz in partnership with the Caritas charity unit of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of São Paulo and the publisher Editora Moderna, which funded the initiative, and with the support of the Sacred Art Museum of São Paulo.

METHODOLOGY: EDUCATIONAL TRAILS

Trilhas Educativas (Educational Trails), a social project developed by Cidade Escola Aprendiz, is based on the assumption that the teaching-learning process becomes more relevant the more it connects with the life of the leaner and their community. It aims to develop an autonomous and pleasurable relationship with knowledge, along educational pathways that combine the interests of the learners with the learning expectations and the teaching potential of the territory.

For refugees and asylum seekers, most of whom reach the country in conditions of extreme vulnerability, understanding and interacting with the urban space through the Educational Trails project is a strategy for integration and appropriation of the city. By talking to the students about their interests and needs, these pathways prompt the educational agents from the urban space to cater to these demands, while also causing the agents and organizations to improve the service to these people.

Recognized by the Ministry of Education, the Educational Trails “are pathways along which the educational process extends beyond the classroom to public squares, alleyways, ateliers, studios, workshops, businesses, museums, theaters, cinemas, amusement parks, sports centers, libraries and bookstores, among other things”.

REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS

During the five editions of the project, more than 100 refugees and asylum seekers participated in educational excursions to various locations in the city of São Paulo, in accordance with the most pressing needs of the participants. The trips included visits to the following places: Employment and Entrepreneurship Support Center (CATe), Portuguese Language Museum, São Paulo State Immigration Museum, São Paulo Resistance Memorial, São Paulo State Pinacoteca Gallery, São Paulo Municipal Market, Luz Subway Station, the Pateo do Collegio Jesuit building, stores and other locations.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PROJECT

  • Start of the sustainability plans in the territories
  • Start of the systematization of the proposal
  • Participation in a UNHCR event with partners of Cáritas

ON ACCOUNT OF THE CITIZENSHIP TRAILS PROJECT, CIDADE ESCOLA APRENDIZ WAS CERTIFIED AS A STRATEGIC PARTNER IN THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO OF THE OFFICE OF PERMANENT SOLUTIONS OF UNHCR (OFFICE OF THE UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES)

OLDNET

With the goal of bringing together different generations through technology, the OldNet project arranges for teenagers to teach seniors to work a computer. The project started operating in 2015 in the Santa Cruz College, which is the project’s main donor partner, in the west side of São Paulo.

Using strategies for integration between young people and seniors, OldNet operated throughout the year promoting the digital inclusion of seniors with the help of high school students. In addition to the weekly classes, the project also organizes games festivals and cultural trips to the city that provide opportunities for sharing knowledge and intergenerational dialogue. In this process, friendships and trust are established, demonstrating the potential of this project given the challenges of growing old in the urban space.

With the support of the Municipal Fund for the Rights of Children and Adolescents, the CCR Institute and the law firm Demarest , Cidade Escola Aprendiz identified 15 good examples of engagement between municipal schools in São Paulo and other agents of the System to Guarantee the Rights of Children and Adolescents.

The result of this research can be found in the report and the video that present the initiatives and processes established to overcome threats of violations and to promote the rights of children, adolescents and young people in the territories.

CONVERSATION CIRCLE “EDUCATING CITIES AND INTEGRAL EDUCATION – WHAT CAN BRAZIL LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF BARCELONA?”

The debate sought to examine and discuss the experience of the educating city of Barcelona, Spain, in light of the Brazilian context, with the goal of encouraging new actions and relationships to advance the agenda in the city. The city of Barcelona is home to the International Association of Educating Cities and has been a reference on the topic for more than 20 years.

18TH ANNIVERSARY OF CIDADE ESCOLA APRENDIZ

In the year that we completed 18 years working in defense of the rights of children and adolescents, we chose a location that symbolizes our mission, where transformation through education truly occurs in an innovative, inclusive and democratic manner: the Desembargador Amorim Lima primary school. In addition to celebrating the date, we also staged the debate “25 years of the Child and Adolescent Act: Dialogues between city and education” and we released the publication of the Schools Network project, developed by Cidade Escola Aprendiz. The event was also used to award the “Inventive Educator Prize” to André Gravatá, of the local organization Movimento Entusiasmo; to Ariel de Castro Alves, founder of the Special Child and Adolescent Commission of the Federal Council of the Brazilian Bar Association; and to Tião Rocha, of the Grassroots Center for Culture and Development.

COMMUNICATION FOR DEVELOPMENT

At Cidade Escola Aprendiz, communication is recognized as one of the key tools for development and social change. The knowledge that we have been producing for 18 years in the areas of education and human rights, with a focus on childhood and youth, has allowed us to develop content and strategies to mobilize, engage and influence public policies in a profound, rapid and innovative way.

But we realize that these causes are not ours alone and we recognize that the social impact we produce is far more significant when we work together with others. This is why we support companies, organizations and groups to strengthen their position with an effective communication of their causes. We advise on the planning, development and implementation of strategies for campaigns, websites, social networks, printed material and publications that are geared towards the construction of a society that is fairer and more equal for our children and young people.

We work to support the development of projects that, in keeping with the mission, vision and values of the institutions and companies, inform, engage and help build potential paths towards more equitable societies with the depth and care that the topics require.

KEY ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAM
