WE BELIEVE IN TRAVEL

Travel is POWERFUL. Done right, it can sometimes be hard and uncomfortable, but it changes us. It creates empathy for all different kinds of people, cultures, and religions. It inspires gratitude, kills entitlement, and instills a deep responsibility to be a better global citizen. Traveling boosts our courage to do hard things and gives us the confidence to do big things. TFY isn’t trying to provide a humanitarian efy experience, we are working to build life-long humanitarians and social change-makers.

We're building a generation of changemakers

TFY takes a very different approach to LDS humanitarian trips. We are not building houses, we are building you. Through travel we immerse you in a culture and a people and get you proximate to social causes that need your attention. We teach you how to get involved and make a difference long-term. The goal is not a one-time project, but an experience that inspires a life of involvement in humanitarian work and social impact. Human trafficking. Refugees and civil war. Dirty drinking water. Lack of education for girls. A dying ocean. Extreme poverty. These are all causes that keep us up at night. Alone we can’t make much of a dent, but with you and 1000+ other committed youth ready to engage in a cause and make a difference, big changes will happen!

WORLD TRAVEL & SOCIAL IMPACT FOR LATTER-DAY SAINT YOUTH

Join TFY to explore some of the most incredible places on planet Earth! Our trips are designed for Latter-day Saint youth, ages 15-19, who want to explore the globe, learn about new cultures, get proximate to social issues, and experience once-in-a-lifetime excursions and adventures.

Travel for Youth has changed me. I know now that I can make a difference and that I am brave enough to try. Thanks to TFY who spent countless hours putting their whole heart and soul into these trips to make sure each and every traveler will have the experience they need, and will never forget. This trip taught me how to see people through Christ’s eyes. The hardest part was saying goodbye!

Hailey M.

TFY was spiritual, fun, and hard work all in one. I discovered how to pray & how to get an answer—I found God on my trip. The love and bonds you build will forever be with you. The mountains climbed physically, mentally and spiritually taught me so much.

Spencer M.

TFY gave my children amazing life changing experiences. We chose TFY because it offered a perfect blend of humanitarian, culture, & adventure on their trips. Kimball & Erin put in incredible amounts of work for these magical places, & provide a spiritually enriching environment. The organization, safety, & quality of these trips is impressive. I look forward to sending all of my children!

Lori T.

Travel for Youth opened my eyes to some of the struggles that others go through. I was able to see joy in so many people, and it made me a better person. I think daily about my experiences with TFY and I would recommend to anyone and everyone. It was worth every penny and I would go again in a heartbeat.

Ollie T.

My entire perspective of travel, service, the world and the Lord's children was shifted after my TFY experience. The lessons I learned from the leaders, counselor, and the local people about the Gospel, love, hard work, and culture are priceless and lessons I'll carry forever. I found a love for all people while working with so many of them from diverse places and hearing their stories.

TFY has been life-changing for our 2 daughters to experience different world cultures & eye-opening economic conditions, perform humanitarian service, and develop healthy daily habits that have helped build their strong testimonies. Eternal thanks to TFY.

Doug F.

This eye opening experience taught me so much! It taught me who I am, who I want to be, what I’m grateful for, and I’m so grateful for that. I found the world is actually quite small but in great need. I wouldn’t trade this experience for ANYTHING. Big thanks to Travel For Youth who made this come true.

Brinley D.

It was amazing to enjoy the culture and do good in beautiful places. It was so humbling to see how grateful people were for the little service we could easily give and showed me how much of a difference I can make if I just give some of what I'm blessed with. I loved every second and I’ve never felt greater joy than on my TFY trip!

Katie K.

My daughter returned from TFY with a knowledge of both the good in the world and the good she could do in the world! The Palmer's have created a program that shows the beauty of the earth and it's inhabitants and strengthens the testimony of the Savior in one epic experience! 

Alice M.

What an amazing experience to be immersed in a culture full of so much love and happiness. Being with TFY, your cheeks hurt from smiling so much and you won’t want to come back home. I loved this trip—these two weeks are something I’ll never forget.
