Until May 25, São Paulo will host the project An Eye on the Future, developed by ESPRO - Social Vocational Education, which aims to provide the Young Apprentice with a week with discussion panels with professionals in various professions. Camargo Corrêa Group supported the initiative, and two employees participated last Monday in a discussion panel with students to help them choose their professions.

Antonio Josino Meirelles, Institutional Relations Manager, and Livio Hagime Kuze, Superintendent of Corporate Finance and Planning, shared professional experiences and peculiarities of their professions with about 30 youths in São Paulo, on the morning of May 20. "Participating in this event and sharing our experience with the younger is almost a duty. This is not only a project that has to do with the company's values, which seeks to encourage young people and children, but also the accomplishment of a personal goal”, said Josino.

For Elaine Teixeira, apprentice in HR at Camargo Corrêa S.A. and participant in ESPRO, “the entity opened many doors”. She also said that “being in a company as large as the Camargo Corrêa Group is a very rewarding experience”.
