Help us make students' travel dreams a reality!

SYF receives approximately 2,000 scholarship requests a year. Unfortunately, due to past funding levels, SYF has only been able to award approximately 12% of all requests. In an ideal world, every student would have the opportunity to learn outside of the confining walls of the classroom. Unfortunately, for many, travel experiences are only a dream. The student travel industry is growing exponentially and we need the help of our donors to grow our resources in order to serve more students and youth in need.

All gifts are appreciated - no matter the size! A little can change a lot, and all your donations matter.

Select a level of giving below and help us make travel a reality for under-served students!
