YAPS Ready to Take On 2021

The Young Adult Portuguese Society (YAPS) held its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 2 March 2021 on a Zoom conference call.

A review of the 2020 events and 2021 plans was conducted with the common theme of uplifting the community. This left the newly elected YAPS executive committee confident that they could face any challenges that lay ahead.

YAPS is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. YAPS caters to the cultural, educational and social development and strengthening of the Portuguese culture among the South African community. Our roots are in Portugal, but our branches stretch throughout South Africa.
