Welcome to Sequoia Foundation

Our work at the Sequoia Foundation offers programs to expand the knowledge, vision and capacity and confidence of people of all ages, helping to offer them a future filled with opportunities. The best way to do this, we have decided from the outset, is to offer programs from reading to music, from language to dance. To do this, we offer a broad range of experiences to audiences that seldom have access to the many forms of arts and education We have linked our efforts to many internationally acclaimed organizations and their programs, while at the same time reach many local organizations, by providing funds to aid in their growth and development.

A CTJ desenvolveu expertise renomado no ensino a alunos de diferentes idades e níveis de proficiência, tanto em aulas presenciais como em aulas on-line. Outra característica muito forte da CTJ é seu investimento no desenvolvimento profissional do corpo docente.
