The ROGERIO STEINBERG INSTITUTE/IRS is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “Awake and Develop Talents to Transform Lives” – children and youngsters who come from families of social unprivileged backgrounds. Since it was set up in 1998, about 32000 children and youngsters have been referred by over 30 associate institutions with IRS.
The following programs are offered:
Awakening Talents Program
It takes place in municipal state schools and non-profit educational institutions. It offers activities which are led by the Institute’s facilitators in order to complement the regular syllabus aiming at promoting the discovery of new knowledge and abilities. The facilitators identify those with the AH/SD profile and refer them to the Talent Development Program. 1713 children and youngsters between 8 and 12 years old were seen by this project in 2012.
Talent Developing Program
After the beneficiaries have been selected, they take part in activities at the IRS headquarters and at the partner institutions premises (Sociedade Brasileira de Cultura Inglesa, IBEU, Conservatorio Brasileiro de Musica, Instituto de Technologia ORT, ...) during the opposite shift to that of their schools. These activities enable intellectual, personal and emotional development by means of programs presented by the Leading Workshops (Creation, Entrepreneurism and Vocational Supervision) and by the Specific Talent Workshops (Crafts, Newspaper, Music and Theater). All of which aiming to develop talent and individual expression, encourage creativity and social interaction, citizenship and volunteer spirit as well as the entrepreneurial mind. 230 children and youngsters were seen by the project in 2012.
