Brazilian Association

Bem Vindo!

Welcome to the BYU-Idaho Brazilian Association Home Page!

Even though we are far away from the powdery white-sand beaches lined with palm trees, fronting the deep blue Atlantic ocean, we still reserve the right to share and enjoy Brazil's beautiful culture and food here in Rexburg! Our goal is to embrace and help everyone to learn about Brazil's unique culture! Throughout each semester we enjoy tons of activities, including celebrations of Brazilian holidays, movies, Portuguese lessons, dances, food, and temple sessions. We even can help you find an internship in Brazil! Come join us!
