ídolo social

espírito santo

After carrying out the Ídolo Social Project only in Vitória for two years , we added a centre in Linhares in our third year (2018). Below you can find all the information on the project.

what is the ídolo social project?


Ídolo Social Project is a social project that, at no cost, caters for children and teenagers ranging from 08 to 15 years old with the basketball modality, in centres aimed to Espírito Santo's basic education, in the cities of Vitória and Linhares. Using Anderson Varejão Institute's methodology, we bring elements from basketball's history, rules and foundations. Currently, with its two centres, the Ídolo Social can see up to 400 students simultaneously.


The project's goal is to promote social inclusion through the practice of basketball, to children and teenagers, offering, according to the age range, activities that aim to contribute to a whole development, citizenship spirit, ethical and moral development, as improvement in the beneficiaries' life quality. 


In its third year Ídolo Social Project advanced with the creation of another centre. Besides the capital, Vitória, the city of Linhares, in the northeast of Espírito Santo, is now able to count on Anderson Varejão Institute's activities and actions.

Regarding the cities, AVI has partnerships with both local city halls by the disposal of the training spaces.

Therefore, the activities happen in 02 (two) sporting centres:

a) Vitória (200 simultaneous students) 

Tancredo de Almeida Neves Sporting Centre (Tancredão) Street Rosilda Falcão dos Anjos, 150 – Mário Cypreste.

b) Linhares (200 simultaneous students) 

Multi-sport gymnasium Idemar Uneda, in Shell neighborhood.
