Young Skål: The Future of Skål
Skål International cares about young professionals and students in tourism. In 1999, Young Skål was set up with the aim of creating a greater awareness of Skål International by those young people studying for or training in the various sectors of the travel and tourism industry, enabling them to join Skål.
Many Clubs provide scholarships for students in tourism. Young people are bringing to Skål their innovative power and they will benefit from the experience of the active members who may become prospective employers. In the hard competitive world, as Skål embraces all sectors of the tourism industry, it can act as an oasis free of competition, where they can find protection and support and they might even meet their mentors!
Young Skål is a special membership category for tourism students or young professionals in the travel and tourism industry. Those young persons who qualify for Active membership cannot be approved as Young Skål members purely on the grounds of age. They must have been a student or young professional in one of the classifications described in Article I section 1.2. of the Skål Bylaws for at least one year.
The requirements to become a Young Skål member are:
The Objectives of Young Skål are:
Young Skål members are members of the local Club and dues are collected in the normal way.
Young Skål should be represented on the board of the local Skål Club as observers. Young Skål members automatically have all the benefits of Active membership through the Skål International website.
Clubs may transfer Young Skål members who qualify to Active membership at any time, once eligibility has been established.
Young Skål members may attend Skål World Congresses availing themselves of possible special discounts at the discretion of the host Club.
Young Skål members who leave the training institute and do not enter the industry or if employed depart from an industry position would cease to be eligible for membership.
Skål Clubs should take care when selecting Young Skål members to ensure that the management intentions and potential are clearly evident to avoid situations whereby Young Skål members have to leave the Club at the age of 35 because they are not eligible for Active membership.
Young Skål members should also be encouraged to use the “Member Get Member” approach to increase membership in their Club.
