This article contains reflections by the authors about the Doctoral Thesis of “Valmorbida”, and reflects on projects, educational and work opportunities that students of the State Center for Youth and Adults-NEEJA Alaor Antonio Terra are a school located in Central Prison of Porto Alegre-RS, Brazil, who work as a Prison educational System. They talk about their desires for when they leave the prison system, looking for opportunities and speaking about how their school experiences can be a facilitator of these expectations, by providing the education and supporting the students’ perspective. They receive the proposition: What are the projects for your life and in what instances can the school assist you in achieving this task? Thirty-nine students take part in this research, covering their alphabetization and Middle School levels. The responses will be worked with Content Analysis. Participant students are referred as subject, part spontaneously task that is carried out in the classroom as conversation and redactions, set in a pedagogical proposal.
