The main idea constituting Young Skål is to attract young professionals to the organization and to turn them into active Skal members, once they reach the necessary qualification. The continuity of the movement can be secured by constantly recruiting new members. The members of Young Skål have the opportunity to participate in numerous activities, both in the hospitality industry and in related fields, such as culture, sports or PR. They will therefore have the possibilty of meeting Skål members and interact with them, voluntarily contributing to the general success of the organization. The young participants enjoy the support of the local Skål Club for social activities and for increasing professional experience, having at the same time the opportunity of connecting to an international network of professionals in the field.
