Community Outreach

Community outreach programs build on Opening Doors, Opening Minds themes. They include:

  • A Call for Stories asks travelers of all ages to describe how hostelling changed their view of the world. Tales of unexpected journeys, fascinating people, wonderful discoveries, and warm friendships help others to see the world in a new way and understand the positive impact that travel has had on people. For examples, see our Story Gallery.
  • Local partnerships – Throughout the country, HI-USA hostels and councils work with their local communities in partnerships with schools, community-based organizations, and local cultural institions and businesses. These local partnerships enrich the local community and provide unique experiences for travelers.
