YHA Breaks Programmes aim to reach young people and families with the most challenging lives and provide them with life changing experiences.

YHA understand the power of travel and adventure to transform a child’s view of the world and their place in it, to provide respite and improve children’s health, education and wellbeing. They believe all young people should have the chance to have big adventures, make new friends, try new things and learn vital life skills. They want every child to know what it is like to paddle in the sea for the first time, to see the city skyline at night and to feel the sand between their toes.

Today, young people face many challenges. Financial hardship, homelessness, disability, long-term illness, bereavement, caring for a parent and other circumstances all limit children’s opportunities to explore the world and their place in it. They are here to reach and create new opportunities for those in the greatest need.
