A Celebration of the Spirit of Student Travel

October 6 | 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)

Welcome to the SYTA Youth Foundation Celebration of the Spirit of Student Travel!

Thank you for joining us as we come together to celebrate the spirit of student travel! Now more than ever, the travel industry must unite to bring positivity and hope for the future. The SYTA Youth Foundation has created a program to do just that.

Not only will we highlight the opportunities and first-hand experiences the foundation supporters have granted students and youth over the last 20 years, but we also aspire to leave you feeling part of a strong community. Student travel will return and it will be bigger and better than before. Let’s make it happen!

The Celebration will include appearances by students, messages from supporters and volunteers, and a special performance by the SYTA Band. Attendees will join together in the Networking Lounge for a "90s" themed DYMO dance party.

Take this well deserved break from the world and be inspired by the stories of young people who truly believe we can make the world a better place through travel.

The Celebration of the Spirit of Student Travel on October 6th will be held in the virtual SYTA Central. The program is complimentary to all attendees.
