The present work was developed according to the line of research Education, Work and Social Movements , of the Post-Graduate Program in Education, of the School of Education, of the Federal University of Goiás, with the objective of analyzing the possibility of realizing popular education with children and adolescents. In a qualitative perspective, the data was collected and analyzed through documental sources. The theoretical reference is based on the concepts of popular education and of child and of adolescent. Popular Education understood as political and class education. (BRANDÃO, 1994, 2006a; JARA, 1994; WANDERLEY, 1994). The terms child and adolescent comprehended according to the vision of Benjamin, i.e., as historical subjects, considering that popular and class education adapted to a population composed of children and youth, most of whom have some connection to social movements, necessarily envisions the child and the adolescent in a manner that diverges from the mainline comprehension of occidental capitalistic society. By presenting the difficulties that MAC faced dealing with the institutions that have been organized hierarchically and adult-centered for thousands of years, such as Church, family and school, this research confirmed that it is possible to realize popular education with children and adolescents.
