The SYTA Youth Foundation’s mission is to impact the lives of culturally, linguistically or economically at-risk students and youth through travel experiences that change their lives. We exist to provide access to travel opportunities to young people that would otherwise be unavailable due to family economic hardship, school budget cuts or lack of access to education about travel as a learning experience.
The SYTA Youth Foundation Run Team uses long distance running/walking as a symbol of endurance and hope. The goal is simple - to raise money for youth to travel with their schools or youth organizations. Participants on the Run Team fundraise on behalf of the SYTA Youth Foundation, train and participate and run/walk in honor of a student who has been chosen to receive a Road Scholarship.
