Helio Teles was born in central Brazil in 1967. He attended University in Goias state, where he studied philosophy and theology.

On leaving University he became a teacher and, during this period, was aware of the chronic and systemic nature of poverty in Brazil and which led him to become, at the age of 20, the youngest ever directly elected council member in Brazil, representing the town of Itapirapua
