SYTA Joins the Tourism Cares Community
Membership supports destinations and workforce development, and engagement of staff and clients.
June 7, 2016—Student & Youth Travel Association (SYTA) is pleased to announce their membership with Tourism Cares, the charitable arm of the travel and tourism industry.
Tourism Cares brings the entire travel and tourism industry together to make a greater impact on issues that matter to us all, such as investing in emerging tourism destinations or those in crisis, and supporting a strong workforce. Tourism Cares helps the industry make the most of its giving and volunteering, for the benefit of employees, destinations and the traveling public.
Tourism Cares membership complements any corporate giving effort, offering a range of services and benefits: powerful outcomes and the satisfaction that come from working together; employee engagement and volunteering; B2B recognition and visibility; storytelling and advocacy; peer sharing of best practices; disaster response programs, coordinating the industry when the needs are greatest; and even consulting and custom programs tailored for individual companies.
“We are thrilled to have SYTA as part of our community,” notes Mike Rea, Tourism Cares CEO. “The stronger our membership, the greater our impact can be. It’s an honor to work with companies and employees so dedicated to giving back.”
