Project “Beyond the School Wall”
The “Beyond the School Wall” project, in which the three athletes take part, is coordinated by the teacher Jorge Augusto Curto de Oliveira, who is the team’s coach.
The project began early 2008 and welcomes public school students from low-income families which face high social vulnerability. Teacher Jorge teaches Physical Education in the municipal school board. The “Beyond the School Wall” project is his initiative geared towards adolescents at their after-school period.
The challenge, according to the teacher, is to bring the teenagers to the world of sports, where they have a chance to stand out, as it was shown by Karolayne, Matheus, Gustavo and several other young people who attended the project. At the same time, sport helps to keep them away from drugs and other vices.
