Travel Insured International showed its dedication to the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA) by donating a gift of $40,848 to the Student Youth Foundation. The Student Youth Foundation provides financial assistance and travel experience programs that impact the lives of the next generation of global citizens. The SYTA Youth Foundation provides scholarships and financial aid for students and youth who would otherwise miss valuable educational travel experiences and group performance opportunities.

Kevin Herlihy, Travel Insured’s National Accounts Manager, along with Bud Geissler, National Group Sales Manager, attended the Student Youth Travel Association Conference that was held August 25th through the 29th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The check from Travel Insured was presented at the foundation luncheon on Sunday August 27th, 2017 to Bruce Rickert, Vice Chair of the SYTA Youth Foundation and Sheelagh Wylie, Chair of the SYTA Youth Foundation. 

“Being part of the Student Youth Travel Association has been a tremendous experience for both myself and Travel Insured. I am so proud to work for such a company that can make a major impact to the youth of America that can’t afford to experience the world,” expressed Herlihy.

Travel Insured International will continue to work to provide the SYTA – Student Youth Foundation with future donations for the 2017-2018 youth travel year. More information about The SYTA Youth Foundation, a 501C3 philanthropic organization, is found at
