Our team


The mission of the Youth Travel Foundation is to encourage young adults to complement their education and training through travel. By gearing our activities to that end, the foundation contributes to the development of a veritable network of intercultural and international exchange.

By supporting the Youth Travel Foundation, you are helping young people give wings to their dreams of travel.

The Youth Travel Foundation encourages young people to further their education and training through travel and international experiences. Every year, we award three types of grants to young travellers or groups of travellers who submit their projects for travel, work or studies, anywhere in the world! Since we opened our doors in 1993, more than 600 young people completed a travel project with the help of our grant program!

The foundation’s activities, including our grant program, are possible thanks to the support of Desjardins Group, a longstanding YTF partner.
