Join PROFESA and make connections with other puertorricans living in South Florida. The meaning of the word PROFESA is as follows: “PR” stands for Puerto Rican, “PROFES” is for professional and the “A” stands for association. Although PROFESA is a Spanish word, it can be easily pronounced in both English and Spanish. More importantly, its meaning: to “profess”, teach, or lead, is what we envisioned for our organization. Among our goals is to “profess” understanding and love for Puerto Rico, its culture, and the aspirations and potential of our people who have evolved from the humble “Jibarito” into a still humble, but more educated, proud, and modern Puerto Rican professionals.
