Second day of the Bean Academy! Teenagers participated in activities to develop body language, communication and to be more expressive. Tehy also had to present in front of the ublic, using the tecniques they’ve learned. They also had a workshop with Gerson, about safety measures in coffee plantations, and a workshop with Joao about machinery applied in coffee plantations.
The Bean Academy is our new project that will make difference in the lives of 15 teenagers. The kids that participate in this one-week program are from a rural school in an underprivileged area close to the farm. The workshops develop personal and professional skills such as: personal values, communication, leadership and so on, as well as coffee skills, from basic coffee growing principles to grading, roasting, cupping and barista skills.
