Social educators from 24 countries were gathered on 10-12 April 2017 at AIEJI’s World Congress in Brazil. 600 social educators were proud to celebrate that they have #thefinestjobintheworld. The motto of the congress was I am because we are.
At the congress social educators from all over the world shared their experiences, stories, good examples – and the difference they make for marginalised people.
There were also musical performances at the World Congress.
Benny Andersen was re-elected as the president of AIEJI.
“Shoulder to shoulder, we stand together here and the goal is to make the world a better place. And the world needs that! The world needs us.” The president completed his speech with this message: “When you get up in the morning and look at yourselves in the mirror, then say to yourselves, or shout to yourselves – Yes, I have the finest job in the world” – and everybody shouted together!
The new AEIJI board was elected, and most of the members are gathered on this group photo. From the left side you can see Claudio Desanti Sanchez, Ney Moraes, Benny Andersen, Silvia Azevedo, Lorenzo Lucarelli og Daniela Duff.
Je m’appelle Merete, j’ai 29 ans et je cherche un travail en France. I graduated as a social educator in 2015 in Copenhagen in Denmark and have since then worked with young refugees. I have also experience from working in an orphanage and with people with mental developmental disorder. I have travelled quite a bit and enjoy learning new things and adapt into new cultures. For many years I’ve wanted to live in France and now seems to be the perfect time. That’s why I’m hoping to find a job, where I can use my skills as a social educator and at the same time gain more experience within my field. I’m looking for a job preferably with teens or young adults with some kind of social vulnerability or difficulties.
My French is not perfect, but I am taking French classes twice a week and am learning fast. I believe I’ll soon be able to communicate in French on a decent level. If you have knowledge of a job opportunity, a contact or just like to learn more about me please don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Best regards Merete Nørgaard, Denmark

My name is Yannik, I’m from Denmark, and I am a young man at age 25. I speak English, Swedish, Norwegian and a little French. I’m a social educator and I did my final exam January 2015. I’m specialized in people with social problems (especially alcohol problems). I´ve been working with people with physical and mental illnesses, people with abuses and people with mental/social problems. In addition, I escort people with physical and mental illnesses.
I’m open to work in many different areas with different people. But in particular I search for a work with youngsters or adults with some kind of mental or social problems.
I am very good at creating an overview and I am flexible and meeting stable. I engage me in the work I’m doing, and my ethical thoughts have been praised at my previous jobs. I can work solo and take decisions, but I also seek advice in my team. In critical situations I keep calm.
I believe that it is through reflections and sparring with your coworkers that we are developing the pedagogical thinking. We get more conscious about what we are doing and how we do our work in the best possible way. It is our job to support them in the experience of “the good life”.
I hope very much to receive an e-mail from you
Yannik Noah Næsby, Denmark
