TravelAdvocates is SYTA’s Newest Strategic Partner
The global group hotel specialist furthers its commitment to student and youth travel with a Chairman Level donation to the SYTA Youth Foundation.
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 12, 2016—The Student & Youth Travel Association is pleased to welcome its newest Strategic Partner. With this commitment TravelAdvocates demonstrates its dedication to the entire student and youth travel community.
“TravelAdvocates has been so impressed by SYTA on the professional, association and charitable levels that choosing to become a Strategic Partner was a no-brainer,” said Robert Miller, Esq., President/Owner, TravelAdvocates. “ SYTA tour operator members provide superior customer service and value to the groups they assist. Because SYTA sets such a high bar of entry for tour operator membership, valued suppliers know the operator has been vetted and is committed to providing the best travel experience possible.”
In addition to TravelAdvocates’ strategic partnership with SYTA, they have also generously committed $25,000 over five years to the SYTA Youth Foundation.
“The SYTA Youth Foundation is simply incredible. TravelAdvocates is so proud to donate to the Foundation at the Chairman’s Circle level. While we have given in smaller ways to the SYF over the years, TravelAdvocates wanted to make a bigger investment in the next generation of youth travelers,” said Miller.
