You noticed our boat, didn’t you? We “portaged” a boat through the parade as a symbol of what Portage Community does for students. The word Portage means to carry something from one navigable body of water to another.
At Portage Community, we equip healthcare students with the tools necessary for educational success and help eliminate barriers to their goals.
Please look around to see all the remarkable things happening through scholarships and mentoring as we strive to bring hope and healing to your community. We’d love for you to join us on our mission.

INVESTING IN MORE THAN EDUCATION
From our backyard to the DR
