About TSP

Our Travel and Service Programs partner with domestic and international YMCA's to help connect participants to communities and people worldwide. The programs are educational travel experiences that focus on service learning, cultural understanding, and leadership development. The programs are designed to meet the critical needs and challenges of teenagers today by supporting, guiding and challenging young people as they learn skills to become healthy, competent and caring adults.
