4930552641_10d06245a2_bWhen I was young I couldn’t wait to get out of the small town of Greenfield, CA.  There wasn’t much to do or see in Greenfield.  Now, that I am able to travel I take advantage of the opportunities because travel changes your life and your perspective about the world. Just recently we took my father with us to Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. We were so happy that we were  able to show him what the world looks like outside of Greenfield, CA.  He said he never thought he would ever see Europe and my dream is that this trip was just the beginning of our travels together.

We know how expensive and unrealistic it is to travel for some of us whose parents work so hard just to put food on the table and keep the lights on.  Traveling is a luxury for some of us and an unrealistic dream, but fortunately there are some programs that offer travel grants to high school students and if you take advantage of these programs you too can discover the world and all its greatness.

For example, the SYTA Youth Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers travel scholarships for high school students.  T

The Foundation provides scholarships and financial aid for students and youth who would otherwise miss valuable educational travel experiences and group performance opportunities.  TheSYTA Youth Foundation believes that TRAVEL CHANGES YOUNG LIVES FOR GOOD.  The Foundation strives to provide access to travel opportunities for the maximum number of young people that would otherwise be unavailable due to family hardship, budget cuts in school systems, or simply lack of the access to or education about travel as a learning experience by offering the following 4 scholarships.

Next Generation Scholarship

Ripley-Hunter Scholarship

Road Scholarship
Silver Lining Scholarship
