ICA was founded in 1997 to provide children from poor communities of Mogi Mirim with after-school activities. The organization began a pioneering initiative in the municipality, serving 40 children with after school tutoring, art activities and workshops. ICA has created a best practice methodology in education, earning the respect and recognition of the community. Nowadays, the center multiplies its teachings in two well-regarded social welfare centers, three local schools and other social organizations. In 2009 ICA was designated a “Ponto de Cultura” (Point of Culture)*.

* Title of recognition awarded by the Brazilian Ministry of Culture to institutions that have made socio-cultural impacts in their communities.
