The Rede Cultural Beija-Flor uses artistic, cultural, and sports languages as tools for socio-educational intervention. Our methodology aims to encourage children and youth to develop their abilities, boost self-confidence, establish new social bonds, strengthen socio-emotional connections, and foster a sense of community. All workshops and projects incorporate cross-cutting themes such as universal values, environmental education, gender equality, cultural diversity, and more.

Our students are positively “provoked” to participate experiences that contribute to their ability to communicate and coexist. We use tools that enhance learning conditions, exchange, choice-making, self-reflection, and projection into the world. This educational development is sensitive to the needs of today's society, mainly because it generates empathy, empowerment awareness, and an expanded vision of the future, awakening in children and young people the desire to dream.


        • Espaço Cultural Beija-Flor – ECBF (Beija-Flor Cultural Space): Prepared to offer courses in visual arts, performing arts, capoeira, dance, percussion, with an area for presentations and shows with a capacity for 220 people, as well as workshops in computer science, English, and vocational training for first-time employment. 
        • Núcleo Comunitário Sítio Joaninha – NCSJ (Sítio Joaninha Community Center): Designed to promote gastronomy and nutrition workshops, equipped with a cold room and an industrial kitchen.
        •  Núcleo de comunicação Olhar Social – NCOS (Olhar Social Communication Center): Has infrastructure to offer workshops and training in the field of communication and audiovisual, offering courses in photography, journalism, design, and video. This unit also has a professional audio recording studio and web radio facilities. 
        • Nectar: The Beija-Flor Cultural Network has been offering the Nectar vocational guidance course for six years. This 11-month course focuses on helping young people aged 14 to 16, residents of Diadema communities, think about their professional future. The Network also offers a one-week professional experience in partner companies and the opportunity for first employment through CIEE (Centro de Integração Empresa-Escola). The program covers various aspects necessary for adolescent development, including citizenship, sports, culture, technical education, foreign language, communication, and philosophical practices for good coexistence, among others.
        • Trainees and referrals: In partnership with CIEE, we refer 30 young people to work at the ABC Justice Court. As interns, the students gain practical knowledge of professional roles, allowing them to empirically apply the theoretical subjects they learn in formal education. The knowledge acquired in theory gains a practical perspective through the internship.
        • Treasures of Africa: This is a project of traditional African rhythm for the Eldorado community in Diadema, which proposes an instrumental experimentation based on the artistic interpretation of the relations, habits, and transformations of African peoples, valuing their cultural heritage. 
        • Tribals: A dance performance that combines choreography, rhythmic and visual elements to tell the story of Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the struggle of African people to survive and protect their culture. It leads us to reflect on sociocultural and ethnic issues and how they resonate in the current language for young people in peripheral communities.
