30 Years of Legacy

Changing Lives Through Education

Ayrton Senna dreamed of a country where everyone knew victory and had more opportunities. The family carried forward the pilot’s will and, in 1994, founded the Ayrton Senna Institute with the purpose of transforming the country through education.

Accelerating social transformation, the Institute has driven innovative initiatives, making history with a journey of impact. Senna dominated the tracks, the Institute dominates the construction of educational solutions that promote change.

In 2024, the Institute celebrates 30 years of legacy. Is time to celebrate the million of victories of children, young people, and educators from all over Brazil, whose lives have been transformed through our work.

We produce evidence based knowledge about education and human potential, implement educational projects in partnership with public schools, train teachers and contribute to the development of public policies that make a difference.
