To: Sponsors & Members of the Pan American Student Forum of Texas


During these unprecedented times, our Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interest of everyone to delay resuming events until the 2021-2022 school year. 

We realize that this is disappointing, especially to our Class of 2021.  However, in light of the fact that many districts are limiting or eliminating extracurricular activities, the board made the safest and most equitable decision. 

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

PASF is a youth organization which was founded in 1927 as a national organization.  Texas joined the organization in 1943.  The purpose of PASF then, as now, is to offer students and teachers a better opportunity to learn more about all the Americas and the Spanish speaking world, thus fostering cordial relations among these peoples.


The forum was sponsored by the Good Neighbor Commission of Texas from 1949 to 1987.  This relationship ended when the 70th State Legislature voted to eliminate the Good Neighbor Commission.  The Forum now functions as an independent organization.


The Pan American Student Forum is self supporting through nominal dues paid by its members and is self-governing through its elected state officers.  The objectives of PASF are to encourage a respect for all nationalities and an understanding of them based on a more thorough knowledge and appreciation of the peoples of the Western Hemisphere; to encourage the learning of Spanish as a medium of communication; and to serve as an example of what can be accomplished by individuals of different ancestry working together.
