Together is better! Do well by doing good!
The Stefanini Institute Association is a branch of the Stefanini Institute Brazil, founded 18 years ago by the founders Marco and Graca Stefanini, with the aim of providing education and development opportunities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our story began in Romania in 2019 when we launched our programs in Bucharest, Sibiu and Târgu Mureş. We started with a team of volunteers in Bucharest, and in the summer of 2019 we launched the Stefanini Institute in the other two locations and we ended up working with a team of over 50 dedicated and energetic volunteers. With the help of our teams, we develop educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people, in order to help them acquire the skills necessary for their development and advancement in life. We organize events and educational trainings in the field of IT and personal development.
In 2020, with the onset of the pandemic we decided to transfer all our actions online, we delivered free trainings and webinars of IT and Soft Skills to disadvantaged young people through the Zoom platform and we started working on a new formula for our free courses found now on the site.
