Support the Foundation

Invest in the next generation

The Youth Travel Foundation was created in 1993 by the organization Tourisme Jeunesse in order to support young people who want to travel, complete an internship or grow their projects abroad. The foundation encourages responsible travel and tourism. 

By supporting the foundation:

  • ¤ You are encouraging young people to cultivate their entrepreneurial spirit, their sense of adventure and their curiosity.
  • ¤ You are helping to shape a cohort of young adults brimming with innovative ideas... and ready to move in on the labour market.
  • ¤ You are investing in the next generation of young leaders—leaders who are open to the world and ready to broaden their horizons.

You can show your support to the foundation and invest in future generations by making a personal donation or becoming a corporate sponsor.

Donate

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 will help young people:

  • - achieve their dreams of travel.
  • - seize an opportunity to grow.
  • - thrive through their discovery of the other and connections with new cultures.
  • - foster the development of a more social and responsible form of tourism thanks to training, documentary tools and the sharing of ground experiences, in addition to opportunities to get involved in a school setting.
  • - receive solid advice and useful resources for having their own enriching experiences, in a spirit of respect and open-mindedness

 

The activities of the Youth Travel Foundation are made possible thanks to the Youth Travel Foundation Visa Desjardins cash back program.

By making a donation to the foundation:

  • - You are encouraging young people to grow, achieve their dreams and thrive through highly enriching travel experiences and human connections... and also helping to make that happen. 
  • - You are supporting the development of a fairer, more responsible form of tourism. 
  • - You are helping people discover another way to travel.
