US-Brazil Connect’s mission is to strengthen education and build economic opportunities by connecting communities, engaging leaders, and creating transformative learning experiences linking the United States and Brazil.
Originally launched as an initiative of the National Center for Business Champions, US-Brazil Connect has a history of building public/private partnerships for the benefit of a better-prepared workforce. In 2010, we partnered with the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board to facilitate seven White House meetings that brought business leadership together for skilled-workforce solutions.

We bring communities in the U.S. and Brazil together to put ideas into action. We are passionate about developing practical strategies that help people in the United States understand and engage with Brazil. We focus on three priority areas for impact:
- Engaging a new generation of Americans in life-changing opportunities in Brazil;
- Building community college capacity to bring communities in the U.S. and Brazil together for education, culture, and economic opportunity; and
- Building networks and partnerships to support greater knowledge of Brazil in the United States.
