Offering professional opportunities for young people ages 15 to 29 is the goal of an Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) program in Brasilia, Brazil’s capital city. The initiative, carried out in partnership with the government of the Federal District through its Youth Secretariat, will offer vocational training to young people in the communities of Samambaia and Recanto das Emas.
Ana Vitória Venceslau, 16, and Mateus Alves, 19, have something in common: both have been admitted to professional courses at the Samambaia Sul Youth Center, which opened on March 21, 2022. Venceslau wants to study medicine and join the Military Police. Alves is preparing to take the engineering course.
