Hostelling International Austin provides accommodation for travelers from around the world and other cultural activities for visitors and Austin residents. Their mission is "to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling." Imagine a world where intercultural dialogue and responsible travel are part of every individual's experience. Hostelling International Austin’s programs strive to build a new generation of global citizens, unburdened by stereotypes, emboldened by open minds, appreciative of their own heritage and understanding of others, through dialogue and education. Our host, Amy Wright will speak briefly about our programs including Cultural Kitchen, world travel classes, and travel clubs. For more information, you can contact Amy at 512-444-2294 or email [email protected]. Visit the Hostelling International Austin website at http://www.hiaustin.org
