Contiki Vacations to Be Platinum Sponsor for WE Day California

Millennial travel company supports youth activism and social change at star-studded inspirational and educational event in Inglewood, Calif.

Anaheim, California, UNITED STATES

Anaheim, Calif., March 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Contiki Vacations, a travel company for 18-35 year-olds, is dedicated to empowering young Americans to see the world and is no stranger to the millennial market.  This year, Contiki is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor at WE Day California, happening on April 7, 2016, in Inglewood, California.  This event is an opportunity to encourage and support future generations of travelers to begin affecting social change at a young age, making them global citizens of the world.

What is WE Day?

WE Day, an inspirational event fueled by an educational initiative known as WE Schools, brings together world-renowned speakers and performers with a stadium packed with young people who have earned their way to the event through local and global action, ranging from collecting food for homeless shelters to raising funds to build classrooms overseas. 

How is Contiki involved?

As a Platinum sponsor, Contiki is committing to helping empower future travelers to find their passion and create change at home and abroad – long before they decide to travel.  As the millennial generation has overtaken the Baby Boomer generation in size, it is more important to share the impact that young people will have on the world, socially, economically, and spiritually.

“Contiki is proud to be a sponsor of WE Day California,” said Melissa da Silva, President of Contiki Vacations. “This is a great opportunity for Contiki to give back to our local community and support the growth of the next generation of global leaders.”

To capture the event, Contiki will be live-streaming using Facebook’s latest social media tool “Facebook Live” to give viewers at home a backstage pass to the festivities. They will also bring virtual reality video to the event so that the young activists can experience traveling the world with Contiki.
