éthic étapes, it's tourism and much more.
éthic étapes. As its name suggests, quality accommodation for individuals and groups, a spirit of solidarity and responsibility uniting all our centres, where meeting people and cultural exchange are key. We have been championing this fresh idea for more than 30 years... and it's still going strong.

Missions and goals
Éthic étapes is a voluntary union of international accommodation centres (CIS) which was set up in 1979. It is a non-profit organisation, whose purpose is to provide young people from all over the world with quality welcome.

History and key figures
1979, the Ucrif is founded - 2005: it becomes éthic étapes - 2015 : 48 centres all over France... The years have gone by but our values remain unchanged. The Ucrif, which later became the Ucrif Etapes Jeunes and is now éthic étapes, was founded with the aim of developing and promoting a different kind of hospitality for young people from all over the world, based on meetings and exchange.

Accessible accommodation
Take guests from all over the world, diversity and mixing as a principle for action, a pinch of exchange, a portion of activities: mix these ingredients together and you have a recipe that enables thousands of people to meet each other each year.
