Canto Cidadão began its activities in the second half of 2001, but became officially a non-profit nongovernmental organization on July 19, 2002.

It all began with the meeting between Felipe Mello and Roberto Ravagnani, through lectures on citizenship, production / presentation of radio programs and visits of clowns to public and philanthropic hospitals.

With the approach of more interested people, the socio-cultural and socio-educational programs were widening, reaching more partner organizations and their publics.

The organization

The greatest desire is to improve the practices of an inspired, organized and competent volunteer.

For this, several adjustments have been made: new process of entry of volunteers; initial and ongoing preparation revised and extended; strengthening the day-to-day management of voluntary groups; generation of indicators shared with all stakeholders; more internal / external communication and creation of a recognition program.
