YOMPS is dedicated to Responsible Tourism. All of the volunteer projects that YOMPS supports directly benefit either the environment, the local community, or both. All projects are carefully chosen, with specific attention being paid to their involvement in the sustainability of all their practices / project goals.
All of our projects and expeditions issue the participants with clear guidelines on responsible tourism, all specific to the particular environment / region. These cover a number of issues ranging from waste disposal in remote areas, recycling materials, buying from local businesses and not exploiting the wildlife or harming the environment.
