Transforming young lives through travel and real adventure

Transforming young lives through travel and real adventure

Because YHA is a charity, when you stay with us you are helping us keep our prices affordable, maintain our hostels in beautiful locations and give as many young people as possible a chance to enrich their lives. And you have been helping us do this since we started.

We are stronger than ever thanks to the continued support of all the people who stay with us, eat with us, and volunteer or fundraise for us. Thanks to each and every one of you we can carry on putting 100% of everything we earn straight back into YHA and continue to offer everyone the chance to experience what we do.

And we mean everyone.

Every bed, in every hostel, on every night of the year can make a positive difference to somebody – be they holiday-maker, short-breaker, business traveller or backpacker. And that’s just for starters. As a youth charity, we intensively support travel opportunities for young people – especially those for whom adventures are otherwise out of reach. And our particular focus is on improving physical and mental health and wellbeing through these experiences – and passing on crucial life skills that improve young people’s life chances.

How can you help?

It’s easy. Stay with us. And while you are here buy a coffee, a slice of cake or a delicious dinner. Become a member, volunteer, donate, fundraise or just tell your friends.

Whether you help us to run or maintain our unique hostels, donate once a month or once a year, or cycle, run, swim or walk to fundraise for us, any help is more than welcome. And then tell your friends and family. The more people that stay with us, the more we can do. So share your YHA photos and your fun stories and experiences whenever you visit.
