Press Release: IMG’s Renewed Commitment to Supporting Equitable Access to Travel for Students and Youth
March 21, 2023
The SYTA Youth Foundation is excited to announce IMG’s renewed commitment to supporting equitable access to travel for students and youth.
The International Motorcoach Group, IMG located in Olathe, KS, is a longtime supporter of the SYTA Youth Foundation which provides scholarships and travel opportunities to youth. IMG members provide both financial support to the Foundation and transportation services for student and youth groups.
“It’s because of generous donors such as IMG and its members that SYF is able to impact student and youth with travel experiences that change their lives,” said SYF CEO, Carylann Assante. “Together we can create unique and successful programs that bring deserving students out into the world to explore and learn.”
“IMG is firmly committed to our continuing support of the SYTA Youth Foundation as we believe fully in the mission of travel for those student and youths who are unable for many reason to have that experience. Travel opens the world both educationally and culturally and to be able to assist in just a small way is so important to IMG members.” said IMG President, Bronwyn Wilson
