for a good cause

Through its activities, YTF aim at developing a generation of curious, open-minded and caring young people. We believe in building a community of people dedicated in leaving the world in better state than they found it.

Awarding travel grants is made possible thanks to the generosity of people who, like us, believe in the role that travel plays in creating a tolerant world, understanding and respectful of cultural differences. Show your support of the Youth Travel Foundation's mission by making a donation; all donations are directly redistributed in grants!

Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine. To gain a deeper understanding of this ancient practice and to see it applied in its original cultural context was an amazing opportunity. I return home humbled and grateful for this unbelievable experience; I got to learn techniques that are not even taught back home. This trip enriched my practice on all levels. I launch my career with a full toolbox and a head filled with memories!
