Our impact

We create opportunities to explore, learn, share and grow in inspirational places.

Through new experiences in our youth hostels, young people learn about themselves, each other and the world around them. As a result, they grow into happier, healthier and more successful adults.

This year we reached over 1.1 million young people through staying, volunteering, experiencing and engaging with YHA. Of these young people, 256,637 stayed with us, and 148,720 were on school trips and youth programmes.

We particularly focus on improving physical and mental health and wellbeing, and developing crucial life skills, in young people with the most challenging lives.
