AE2O is a non profitable private organization, whose general objective is to promote second chance education, working especially with young people with low school and professional qualifications and being at the risk of social exclusion. Its main activity is to run in Matosinhos, north of Portugal, a Second Chance School, in the scope of the European Second Chance Schools network (E2C-Europe).
Escola de Segunda Oportunidade offers to the young people a new chance of quality training suitable to their needs and develops a set of activities of training, exchange and spreading of experiences.
One of the main aims of the school is to provide the young people with the intercultural experiances.
The work of AE2O is based on the idea that anyone who is given the possibility to meet various cultures in a stimulating environment (like it is during the international project) experiences a profound change, opens mind an alternates perspectives.
For several years AE2O has been organising and participating in many international projects (youth exchanges, seminars, training courses, networking activities). Recently, together with the partners, established an international asociation INFACCT, a structure supporting cooperation on the european level.
