WE WANT TO TRANSFORM THE WAY WE LEARN
Instituto NOW offers individuals and organizations transformative learning experiences focusing on the development of competences for the 21st century.
We believe that making education truly transformative, inclusive and meaningful is essential to build a more just, diverse and equal world. For us, education is not limited to the school walls – it takes place wherever we learn something valuable. And learning happens in the interaction with others.
We create learning experiences that make learning visible and measurable. We have two ways of doing that: we offer personal and professional development programs for youth and adults, and we help organizations improve their training and learning processes.
Design of educational programs
Creation of frameworks of competence
Facilitation of group and learning processes
THEMES THAT MOVE US
Instituto NOW is the Brazilian spin-off of NOW, a non-profit organization based in Switzerland. We co-founded NOW in 2016 in order to create innovative programs that stimulate a changemaker attitude among young people and help them create positive change in their surroundings.
With Instituto NOW we are taking the methodologies and approaches developed by NOW to the world, focusing on the transformation of education. This is the Instituto NOW team:

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
“Without the support of Instituto NOW we wouldn’t exist today! With their help in setting up the methodology, we have been able to go from zero to a running program in 6 months. Together with Elis and Rahel we have created a truly innovative program that helps young people who struggle to get into the job market to learn the competences needed to stand on their own feet.”
“Instituto NOW was essential to help us redesign the basic level of our learning program. Knowing how to work with diversity and social impact are essential competences for the 21st century, and even more important for our work with global citizenship. Instituto NOW was able to translate their expertise about this topics to create meaningful content for our program.”
“I worked with Elis and Rahel for over 2 years in different non-formal education projects. I was impressed by their capacity to create new methodologies and to think outside of the box. It’s very clear that the values of Instituto NOW are present in everything they do. I’d love to work with them again in the future.”
“Participating in an exchange experience was essential for us to explore new perspectives about our organizational culture, about the competences developed in our programs, and about management. Our experience in Zürich allowed us to have deep conversations with actors from that ecosystem, and better understand the nature of the obstacles that we face as organizations.”
“Instituto Now combines sensitivity and professionalism in the way it designs, prepares and delivers transformative experiences. The team has talented and experienced facilitators, brings international references and experiences and puts special attention to diversity. We are fans and partners of Instituto Now!

O que poderia acontecer se a […]
What do you do when, after several months of dreaming and designing a program, you launch it and no one signs up? Here are my reflections on gut-feeling, learning from failure and listening to the target group. Over a year ago, we started dreaming of creating a program for youth that would tackle what we […]
