HI USA’s annual Sleep For Peace celebrations shine a light on our mission to inspire a better understanding of people, places and cultures through travel and, specifically, through staying at our hostels. Each year, to coincide with the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, our hostels host a series of events which emphasize this mission and bring our guests together to take part in a variety of peace-building activities.
Whatever kind of beaches are on your Northern California bucket list, you’ll likely find them on the northern side of the Golden Gate Bridge where HI Marin Headlands and HI Point Reyes hostels happen to be conveniently close to the scenic shores, making them excellent for sun-soaked sleeps after a day of beaching it up.
The Explore the World scholarship was created because HI USA believes travel should be as much about making a difference in the places we visit as it is about exploring those places. We also believe that travel should be accessible to everyone, and shouldn’t be limited because of the cost involved. These travel scholarships are just one part of our commitment to inspire a new generation of travelers by supporting their big dreams to better the planet.

HI USA takes travel seriously. So seriously in fact that along with offering enlightening hostelling experiences across America, our non-profit organization is also dedicated to spreading the joy of seeing the world. That’s why we run several signature programs for hostel guests and community members both young and young at heart who would like to open their souls to creating a better understanding of people, places and cultures through travel and doing good.
