Making travel meaningful: How hostels can add culture to the youth travel experience

Friday, 23 September | 15:40-16:20

Rosie Coats and Anne Posschelle


Student and youth travel is layered with many different varieties of education, ranging from traditional lessons to life lessons learned from individual people and places. Freehand’s goal as a hostel operator and local expert is to become a big part of that process, encouraging our guests to gather experiences and providing them with opportunities to interact with local communities.  Through unique programming and local collaborations, a hostel can turn a trip into a meaningful and purposeful journey that leaves a positive impact on both the traveler and the destination. Join Rosie as she shares some examples from Freehand’s approach to making travel meaningful.
