    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”tab-stops: 263.25pt;”><span lang=”PT”>Although there was no involvement in the community as scheduled, through the Service Learning methodology, the project carried out by the work group, designed as an intervention proposal, in order to reduce the problems identified through empirical collection, it turned out to be a very enriching activity. I refer to the personal, academic level and as a future professional in the field of education and intervention.</span></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>The experience would not have been so enriching without the synergy that was felt between the elements of the working group. The setbacks arose and brought frustration, anxiety and discouragement, however, the strength of the group took the boat to a good port and the feeling of task performed for each one of us. I am proud of our strength, our capacity for resilience and the work that, with so much effort, we managed to accomplish and present. In my view, one of the purposes of education is this feeling of accomplishment and the sense of positive change I feel towards the task. Stimulus is essential for motivation. Motivation is essential for carrying out tasks with success and meaning. I felt this encouragement, this motivation and also the feeling of accomplishment. We were able to give the task a new meaning and the impact was really positive.</span></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>The experience did not go in the direction of what was initially proposed to us, however, we think we have managed to signify and face with great strength and commitment the path we chose to follow as a solution</span></p>

    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>Despite the fact that the work group to which I belong sent a request for formal collaboration to the institution selected by us, the answer never reached us, and we were faced with the impossibility of carrying out participant observation and intervening in loco. This situation surpassed us, since the decision was pending from third parties. Time progressed and there was some frustration, anxiety and lack of motivation in the face of events. Our fear pointed to interference with the quality of the work we intended to carry out, having constituted a barrier. Without data and information about the context we would not be able to progress in the proposed tasks. The stimulus I channeled into the activity eventually faded.</span></p>

    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>However, it was possible for us to carry out a semi-structured interview with one of the support techniques for the study of CAF, thus enabling us to identify the problem – violence between peers – in which we would support the intervention proposal. As it was not possible for us to carry out the experience according to the foreseen methodology (Service Learning), we were proposed to restructure the work and the methodology by which we would be guided. The objective would be to carry out an interventional proposal that constitutes a project suggestion that, in the impossibility of being implemented by the working group, would be a proposal constructed in a way to be managed by the school itself. This restructuring gave us a new lease of life, kept us focused, motivated and dedicated.</span></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>Throughout this process, the action and posture adopted by the work group assumed a preponderant character, in which resilience and adaptability safeguarded the conclusion of the experience. The group’s internal dynamics was guided by communication and dialogue, allowing for a fluid, active and effective interaction, creating harmonious environments and, therefore, favorable to sharing. Assigning tasks to each member of the group proved to be a very proportional, symmetrical, agile and flexible exercise, with all of us showing our willingness to contribute equally and with the same enthusiasm.</span></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: normal; background: white;”><span lang=”PT” style=”color: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext;”>Our contribution towards co-transforming the weaknesses detected in the context into potentials and in the effective change of behaviors, being aware that for this to happen, there will have to be the integration of activities, suggested by us, throughout the training course of children. Its practice should be periodic and constant, thus being a continuous and persistent work.,</span></p>
