Skål International cares about young professionals and students in tourism. In 1999, Young Skål was set up as a division of Skål International 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.
Young Skål International Garden Route was officially instated in 2016 and a Young Skål President was chosen in 2017, Rohan Minnaar.
