The mission of Youthlinc is to create lifetime humanitarians.

Our core programs (Local & International Service Year, Utah Local Service Directory, Young Humanitarian Award, Real Life teen refugee mentoring program) are based in principles from educational and service learning research: student leadership, hands on sustained service which creates an emotional bond, mentoring, project based and cooperative learning.
Each year, 200 Youthlinc students contribute over 15,000 hours of service in Utah, becoming relied upon volunteers for over 100 community service agencies.

Each year, Youthlinc Service Year teams contribute nearly $400,000 in water projects, construction projects, vocational training and equipment, special needs services, school and medical supplies, small loans, and other quality of life initiatives in partnership with impoverished communities in Cambodia, Guatemala, Kenya, Peru, Vietnam and Thailand.

Our online Utah Local Service Directory is a resource of student friendly service sites recommended for young people by young people for hands on service in a positive mentoring atmosphere. This resource is available for everyone in the state, and allows volunteers to log, track, and verify their service hours.

Our Young Humanitarian Award annually recognizes Utah young people who excel at giving back with a $5,000 college scholarship and three $1,000 runner up awards.

Our Real Life teen refugee mentoring program pairs Utah young people with underserved teens in South Salt Lake to deliver a fun and interactive life skills curriculum including financial literacy, health and hygiene, job and college preparation, social skills, and cross cultural activities.

Though only 5% -20% of our incoming class of students each year have had any significant volunteering experience, 60-93% of our alums continue to serve in their communities.
