Program Details

Are you looking for an incredible experience in Brazil that will help you grow in your professional and personal life?

Florian, 26 years old, from France took the opportunity to work with us over the past year. He had the mission to create content for our 3 projects, Favela Inc, Favela Experience and Nova Era. His mission was to jump from project to project, to document stories from the favela, to capture hikes on the top of Dois Irmaos, to promote the local brewery, and to go on a video trip for 10 days around Brazil.

”It is going to be so hard for me to leave the best job I ever had to someone else, but I’ll be really happy to speak with you more about this job, take the chance it is so worth it!!” ~Florian
