UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO PORTUGUESE ASSOCIATION
Working Towards a Brighter Future
UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO PORTUGUESE ASSOCIATION AT A GLANCE
Our group’s purpose is to bring together individuals interested in learning about and celebrating Portuguese culture, and encouraging education for Portuguese youth. We achieve both of these goals through organizing, hosting, and collaborating for cultural events on campus, fundraising to give out scholarships at our annual gala, and giving outreach presentations in schools from the Portuguese community. We value post-secondary education and continue to help lower dropout rates and increase college/university enrollment rates of Portuguese youth. At U of T, we encourage all U of T students to participate in our programs/events to contribute to our goals of education and celebrate the diverse cultural associations we are so lucky to be surrounded by at the university.
