Centro Educativo “Nueva Vida” (Montevideo) URUGUAY

“Codeso” civil association was created with the support of the Archbishop of Montevideo and aims to develop an educational project for human promotion.
On 12 December 2001 the Education Centre “New Life” was born for the comprehensive care of children and adolescents in the context of their families. It is
therefore a non-formal education center. Essentially it comprises three projects, which aim to work with different age groups:

  • CAIF: it works with young children – 0 to 3 years;
  • Children’s club – School children from 5 to 12 years;
  • youth center – for youth aged 12 to 18 years.

The three projects work with integrated educational systems, combining the formal system with non-formal activities such as workshops.
All these products are realized in one of the suburbs of Montevideo along with a network of organizations working in the neighbourhood codeso.focolar.org.uy

POSSIBLE SERVICE AREAS:
Integration of the educational processes according to the inclination or preference of the volunteer in any of the three projects in which we work, infancy, childhood and adolescence.
