PALCUS Partners with MultiWay to Provide Student Exchange Opportunities

PALCUS has partnered with MultiWay (http://www.multiway.org/) an organization that helps students achieve their goal of studying abroad. Through this partnership, we are able to offer Portuguese-American high school and college students an opportunity to spend a year in Portugal going to school and living with a host family, as well as students from Portugal an opportunity to study and live in the United States with an American host family.


Currently, MultiWay has 12 Portuguese students in need of US host families for the coming school year.  If you are interested in hosting a student, please browse the profiles below and contact MultiWay directly by sending an email to multiway@multiway.org.  


If you are a US student interested in studying abroad in Portugal, please also contact MultiWay directly by emailing multiway@multiway.org.


This is a great opportunity to help our future leaders experience life in another country, and especially to enhance their foreign language skills!


This partnership with MultiWay is part of PALCUS' continued efforts to expand our Education programs.  Learn more about PALCUS Education Programs here: http://palcus.org/programs/education

PALCUS Mission

In order to create a singular voice to advocate  for the Portuguese American and Luso-American communities at large, the Portuguese American Leadership Council of the United States Inc. (PALCUS) was founded in 1991  as a 501 3 non partisan, non profit, organization headquartered in Washington D.C.
The PALCUS mission is to address domestic and international concerns of the  Portuguese American Community.
The Council conducts an expanding program of educational and public affairs activities on issues of interest to the Portuguese American community and of salience to the Luso-American Relationship.
PALCUS is committed to serving the community through increasingly active government relations efforts, the promotion of a greater awareness of ethnic accomplishments and encouraging stronger ties between Portugal and the United States. In this role PALCUS advance the community professionally, politically and culturally while working to ensure that issues directly affecting our community are addressed through our network of government and community leaders.

PALCUS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia.  Donations are tax deductible to extent allowed by law.
