Solo Travel

Mary Barclay

What if the next grant was given in the name of... you?

In order to extend the reach of its actions, the Youth Travel Foundation is currently looking for financial partners eager to provide young Canadians with the possibility to expand their horizon. If you believe that travel shapes youth, let's discuss the possibility of teaming up and changing lives, in your name!
