The Instituto Crescer, in conjunction with Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out the Crescer Mapfre project in order to offer a comprehensive and creative-centered education to young people in vulnerable situations in the Itajaí region (Brazil).

The project seeks to promote a comprehensive, creative and environmentally friendly education. The content of this plan is dealt with in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary manner, in order for the students to be able to integrate it into their own experiences and they also play a role in deciding what the content will involve.

Crescer Mapfre revolves around four central themes: communication, the working world, health and ethics, and citizenship. These four themes are covered in theoretical classes and through field work and business, scientific, political and cultural units.

The Instituto Crescer began in 2003 with a desire to change the circumstances of young people in the Itajaí-SC area.
