Our main pillars


Economic development

For Young Travelers it is fundamental to work with vulnerable and under-resourced communities by using tourism to raise awareness and sensitize young people about the different ways of life and realities that affect us all as a society.
In the same way, the objective is to contribute to the development of different populations, companies and foundations hand in hand with the entities in charge of promoting economic growth and, in turn, encourage prosperity through the development of self-initiated projects that manage to activate immediately, or over time, the economic activities of these populations.

Diversity and Inclusion

Young Travelers has as one of its main goals the promotion of socio-cultural integration, as well as the fight against any type of discrimination due to diversity or vulnerability. This suggests ethnic, gender, linguistic, religious, or economic reasons.
Likewise, Young Travelers has among its principles the recognition of difference as a fundamental value for the development of any type of community or economic sector. For the organization, recognizing and identifying the characteristics or particularities of all human beings guarantees products and services proportional to the needs of a society in the 21st century.


For Young Travelers, it is essential that young people connect with nature and that their immersion in it is carried out in an appropriate manner in order to promote the protection, preservation, recovery and respect for natural resources.
To achieve this objective, we intend to involve environmentally conscious people, committed to the preservation of flora and fauna, who have the conviction of not generating large amounts of pollutants, and have good practices that demonstrate their love for nature.
In addition, we seek the support of public entities, companies and/or competent foundations in the area of tourism and the environment that contribute to this objective.


Young Travelers is a non-profit organization that emerges as a result of the commitment and joint work of different university students who seek to exploit the potential of young people for the construction of a more equitable, diverse and peaceful society; in order to establish a movement that promotes economic prosperity, a healthy environment and a diverse society.

Our organization's main objective is to promote youth tourism as a tool for economic development focused on respect for nature and the fight against all types of discrimination.

On the other hand, Young Travelers provides a series of virtual tools that facilitate the promotion of different tourist sites, as well as a network that allows knowledge and communication between young people, companies and foundations that share the values of the organization.
