ídolo social


Having spent part of the beginning of his career in Franca, Anderson Varejão identifies with the city. Therefore, Instituto Anderson Varejão has its headquarters in Vitória and a branch in Franca, Brazilian basketball capital, also with the Ídolo Social Project since October 2017. More information on the Project below.

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, the Ídolo Social can see up to 200 students. Besides basketball classes, Ídolo Social Franca has as a peculiarity the offer of informatics classes in partnership with SMN. + Snacks between classes.


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. 


Ídolo Social Franca Project's activities take place in Sports Gymnasium  "Tonzé", located in Street Padre Conrado, 1900 - Vila Santos Dumont.
