We are a charity working with the travel and tourism industry providing young people seeking a
career in the sector with access to the skills and experience they need.
Each year, we support more than 800,000 young people across 16 countries by:
• Raising awareness of the wide range of careers available.
• Funding and shaping educational programmes so students can build relevant skills.
• Training teachers so they have deeper knowledge of our industry.
• Through our network of partners, offering hands on experience.
• Recognising outstanding talent and achievement through competitions and awards.
We are proud of our commitment to the GTTP. We care about the future generations looking to make their mark in the travel industry and we want them to thrive, grow and be successful. The GTTP helps that to happen, globally.
“I want to thank you for changing the lives of two young 17-year old girls from previously disadvantaged communities in South Africa. There was no vision… no dreams…and no light! But this project gave them something to be proud of…to dream of…and to work for!”
We believe that investing in education and job training is critical to the economic stability of communities around the world. We view GTTP’s program as a fantastic way to provide vocational tourism education to an underserved younger generation that will then have the potential to become the tourism industry’s workforce of tomorrow.
The GTTP is a perfect way for our companies to give back to the communities where we operate and help young students discover a career in the Travel & Tourism industry.
The GTTP is one of the best examples of a public-private partnership coming together in education and Travelport is both proud of its association with the GTTP and committed to expanding the countries and the number of students within them who can obtain their ‘Passport to the World.
