Say, "Thank You," for the generosity of your host family
What to Pack
Warm clothes.



Personal hygiene items.
Other Items to Pack

Comfortable shoes. You will do a lot of walking.

Photos of your friends, family and city to share with your host family.
Plug adapter to charge your phones, cameras and devices (in the US, we use 120V and 60Hz).

Your passport with Visa and several photo copies of these documents.

Emergency contact information for names and phone numbers in Brazil.

A purse, wallet, or money belt to keep your stipend safe and secure.
What Else to Pack...
With your group, your parents or your coordinator, think about what else you need to pack. What can you leave behind?

SESI and SENAI will provide information on suitcases. We recommend you bring only what they tell you to bring.

As Mary Gershwin says, "do NOT pack your fear. You are on a journey where you do not need to have fear!!"
Your Stipend
Your Brazilian coordinator will tell you about your stipend from SESI and SENAI.

Your stipend will be used for lunches and activities and will need to last for your entire trip.

Make sure to save money and not spend it too quickly.
This is an educational trip. You will have an opportunity to go shopping during the day with your group, but shopping is NOT a priority.

Do not request your host family to take you shopping.

Time with host families and educational activities are more important than shopping.
This will be an amazing trip with memories that will last a lifetime!
Have Fun & Take advantage of this opportunity!
See you soon!!!
