The Young and Adult Education is a problem that is directly related to the socioeconomic structure in the formation of Brazilian society: the illiteracy. Inside this subject, the Educational Project of Young and Adults (Projeto de Educação de Jovens e Adultos /P.E.J.A) associated with the Universidade Estadual Paulista "Júlio de Mesquita Filho" (University of the State of São Paulo/UNESP) Campus Assis, proposes practices that intend to change the condition in which still lives significant part of the Brazilian population: 12.9 million, according the National Sample Survey of Households (PNAD/IBGE), in a research made 2011.
