About the Ayrton Senna Institute.
The Ayrton Senna Institute has been working for more than 20 years to improve public education in Brazil, on the belief that the future of the country begins today, in schools. The organization advocates for full-period education for every child and teenager, to prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century. And, to make this goal a reality, it researches and develops new approaches to pedagogy, educational management, grading and articulation, applying them in innovative educational solutions to be implemented in public systems – in both elementary and high schools.

Every year, it aids 1.8 million students and prepares 65 thousand educators in around 700 cities and 19 states all over Brazil.

The Ayrton Senna Institute is a nonprofit organization created out of the wish by three-time Formula One world champion, Ayrton Senna, to give every child and teenager in Brazil the chance to develop their full potential and build a successful future.www.instituoayrtonsenna.org.br.
