The SYTA Youth Foundation provides student/youth financial resources and programming through travel experiences that impact the lives of tomorrow’s global citizens. The purpose of the Foundation is to design and implement programs that “Give Something Back” to student and youth travellers. The goal is simple – to raise money for students to travel with their schools or youth organizations. Ellison Travel & Tours is proud to be a founding sponsor.
Mary Lynn Higgins Youth Fund provides travel scholarships to students at the elementary and secondary school level. These scholarships are awarded to students in good standing who would otherwise not be able to travel with their class due to financial restrictions. 95% of the recipients are under the age of 13 and due to circumstances out of their control, the financial resources for their educational school trip are not available. They are students who are dedicated in school, are active in fundraising efforts and volunteer in the school community. Sponsoring these students to attend their class trip provides inclusion and boosts self-esteem ensuring equality in education beyond the classroom. Ellison Travel & Tours is proud to be a charter sponsor.
