In 1995, a group of entrepreneurs united for a common ideal: to carry out a transforming program that was economically viable, socially fair, and environmentally sound.
From this combination the Reciclar Institute was created, a non-profit organization that serves young people in a situation of vulnerability and social risk, having as principles the development of social-emotional skills, professional skills and technical knowledge that enable them to enter the labor market and the construction of a life trajectory guided by the protagonism and by a positive and responsible action in society.
In permanent connection with innovation, with the social transformation and the perception of the singularity that each young person brings in their profile and their history, we developed in 2017, in partnership with the Educational Community CEDAC, an educational methodology aimed at training young people engaged in promoting positive changes in their lives, families, work and the community.
Our educational model is based on the principles of:
Comprehensive Education (Learning to Be, Learning to Do, Learning to Know)
Relevant learning for life and work
Respect for uniqueness
Technical training of excellence
Creative, collaborative and welcoming environment
We believe that Brazil's development depends on forming active citizens capable of inspiring positive social, economic and cultural transformations by its own example. Young people are the cradle of this change and the possibility of building a fairer and more prosperous future.
We invest in the social-emotional and professional development of young people with bright eyes and willingness to go further. Let's go together! Together with these talents, we build a bridge between your dreams of the future and opportunities for fulfillment. We reinvent ourselves every day in this mission.
We prepare young people to take on life, work and community, broadening their vision of vocation, skills and interests, and connecting them to the trends of the work world and life in society.
Our challenge is to promote change and to show that everyone can be agents of transformation.
Encourage work and construction together, promote respect for the uniqueness, provide new chances. This is what makes us, in Reciclar, an organization that develops potential and inspires social transformations.
The Instituto Reciclar (Recicle Institute) works for the sustainable development of the country and we believe in guiding our actions through the commitment to promote social transformation. That is the reason why we are participants in the United Nations (UN) Global Pact, the largest initiative of corporate sustainability in the world with more than 13 thousand members in nearly 80 local networks in 160 countries. Further, our strategy is aligned with the SDG ? Sustainable Development Goals made in 2015 by the UN. In total, there are 17 goals and our mission is focused to fulfil three of them.
Goal 4 - Quality education:Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 8 - Decent work and economic growth:Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Goal 10 - Reduce Inequalities:Reduce inequality within and among countries
