The Young Ranger Programme aims to raise awareness of a more responsible attitude towards society and the environment. REGUA promotes the value and need for cooperation in the face of the environmental situation. In addition to encouraging students' curiosity about local biodiversity, it enables awareness of respecting and collaborating with the reintroduction of fauna and flora.  Promoting the importance of forest restoration to preserve local biodiversity and quality of life and water supplies. In this way, the local community is becoming more aware of the importance of conservation of the Guapiaçu river catchment area.

The programme takes place three times a week, for a total of 9 hours a week with 12 students per class.  All classes are based on the same structure as the Scouting organisations, which is non-formal education, thus, (GOHN, 2014, p. 40):

(...) Non-formal education is that which is learned 'in the world of life', via the processes of sharing experiences, mainly in everyday collective spaces and actions. Our conception of non-formal education is linked to the field of citizen education. – which in the school context presupposes the democratization of management and access to the school, as well as the democratization of knowledge. In non-formal education, this education focuses on the formation of free, emancipated citizens, holders of a diversified range of rights, as well as duties towards the other(s).

In this way, all learning is assumed to be meaningful and contribute to strengthening citizenship. However, the following values are followed, also present in the Union of Scouts of Brazil, such as:

(...) Diversity – Respect for differences, in their various dimensions, and permanent defense of human rights. Honesty – Respect for legal, moral, fair and ethical precepts in all actions and relationships. Democracy – Promotion of everyone's engagement and sharing of opinions, in the search for positions and decisions resulting from collective reflection. Inclusion – Adequacy to accommodate the different characteristics and needs of the people who make up society. Innovation – Ability to implement new ideas and seek creative solutions for success and permanent updating of the organization. Commitment – Commitment to social transformation, with children and youth education and the impact generated in communities. Sustainability – Responsibility with the environment, resources and society, and adoption of sustainable practices. Cooperation – Willingness to share experiences, value collective work and maintain relationships with other institutions. Transparency – Visible and clear actions in the management of the organization and resources at all levels.
