Inspire People to Travel by Hosting a Travel Workshop!

Description: Have you returned from the trip of a lifetime and want to share your experience with others? Do you have useful tips, tricks, or special interests that will inspire people to hit the road? If so, we’d love you to be a special speaker a one of our monthly travel workshops. Presentations are free and open to the public, helping educate travelers about the benefits of travel. Workshop topics in the past have ranged from broad presentations such as Women Traveling Solo 101 to country specific presentations like Traveling Paris in Three Days. Speakers will work with the Hostelling International USA Community Engagement Manager to:

  • Create a brief one paragraph description of your workshop that captures the essence of your travels and experiences

  • Build an interactive presentation with a slide show, food or anything you think helps the presentation resonate with attendees

  • Deliver presentation to up to 30 people, including questions from the audience.

Workshops are held either at the New York Hostel or can be presented remotely at one of our partner sites. Presenters are welcome to create unique presentations of their own, or incorporate additional elements that will be useful. Sample presentations and general presentation tips are provided to all prospective travel presenters.

Supporting our Mission:

The travel workshop presenter, through savvy travel tips and cultural learning recommendations, helps inspires a genuine understanding of people, places and cultures for a more tolerant world.
