+Oportunidades (More Opportunities) is a program aimed at promoting education and capacity building for at-risk youth in Brazil. A result of the partnership between the USAID and the Mais Unidos Group, the program will run from 2011 until 2016 and has an initial goal of benefiting 1,000 young Brazilians per year. The +Oportunidades program provides 100 hours of English training to young people between 16 and 29 years of age who are pursuing or have completed high school in public schools. It seeks to include no less than five percent disabled youth in the program. An important outcome is to enable students to benefit from employment opportunities generated by the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. Incorporating elements of information technology, communication, leadership and English language training, the program strives to better prepare its students for opportunities in Brazil’s formal job market. Currently, the program is operational in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, Bahia. It is expected that by the end of 2012, 1500 youth will have been enrolled in + Oportunidades and about 1200 will have received their certificates.
