Welcome to TylerHill.org
Thank you for your interest in Tyler Hill’s story. Allen, Sheryl & Alec Hill are proud to be his family.
Tyler’s family launched two dynamic nonprofit organizations to advance safe global youth travel, student exchange and study abroad in a US $17 billion unregulated industry. ClearCause™ Foundation (501c3) engaged in public awareness, and ClearCause™ Coalition (501c4) engaged in public policy. You can follow ClearCause on Twitter and Facebook.
The student travel and study abroad industry $130 billion worldwide. There are no federal guidelines, crisis response, transparent public reporting mechanisms, or mandated industry standards protecting young Americans expanding their horizons through international travel, exchange or study abroad. Tyler’s family is proud to have hosted eight internationals from Finland, Sweden, France, South Africa, Germany, Japan, Chile and Brazil.
