The mission of the Youth Travel Foundation is to promote the education and personal development of young adults through travel. Each year, it awards grants to applicants who submit a travel project that is original, doable and that embodies our values. Since its inauguration in 1993, the Youth Travel Foundation has enabled more than 600 young people to carry out their goals and embark on a new adventure.
Create a generation of curious, committed and respectful young Canadians. Together, build a more tolerant and peaceful world, one traveller at the time.
We welcome people and ideas from all places.
We believe everyone should be free to express their point of view.
We encourage the sharing of knowledge, experience and beliefs.
We believe experiences are better lived when shared with others in friendship and understanding.
We believe in collaboration and the power of the collective: all for one and one for all.
We’re on a mission to leave the world better than found.
We raise consciousness about a better way of travelling, to being thankful and respectful of the people and the places that make each moment unique and memorable.
