YouthLINC is life changing! I went on the first service trip to Kenya. I was so moved and wanted so badly to return, I worked two jobs and saved for a year so I could go back. YouthLINC opens your eyes to service opportunities you didn't know existed and to opportunities in your own backyard. If YouthLINC participation was required for all youth, this world would be a very different place.

Youthlinc was an amazing and unique experience. Not only did I get the once in a lifetime experience to serve internationally, but I was able to serve locally also. This balance of local and intentional service is one thing that puts Youthlinc above the rest. At the age of 17 I was able to travel to Mexico in the Summer of 2006 and work at a school. It is an experience that has shaped my life in a phenomenal way. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything!

The opportunity to serve with Youthlinc was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. It has been a lifelong goal of mine to travel to Africa to live the culture and provide any help I could, and YouthLinc was the best way I could have reached this milestone. I felt like such an important part of our team throughout that whole year, and I knew that I was making a difference. I was part of the microcredit team, and as such, I was required to create an outline for one of the business lessons we were to teach while in Africa. Not only did we get to create those outlines, but it was incredibly fulfilling to talk to the Kenyan people upon arriving about their business plans and ideas for the future. The counselors were all so encouraging and helpful, and I loved the whole atmosphere of the organization!

Drastically change the lives of hundreds more youth both in the U.S. and elsewhere. This program really pushes that youth become lifetime volunteers, and they really help you see the difference that you are capable of making.

Youthlinc provides a great opportunity for students to get involved and help their own communities. They also get to help developing communities far away from their homes but not their hearts.

YouthLinc is a great program that helped me realize how much of a difference I can make. This program taught me how to serve those around me and to serve those abroad. I will never forget my YouthLinc experience.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That I was able to serve locally and meet with my service group once a month and we as a group decided what we wanted to accomplish in country. Also the many life long friendships I have formed with those I served with.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very organized and familiar with the areas. They all wanted to help and had our best interest in mind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open new service sites to help other parts of the world and send many more students on service trips so they to can have a life changing experience like mine.

YouthLINC provides such a fulfilling and addicting service experience! With its focus on service not only abroad, but at home as well it really helped cement in my mind the need that is abundant everywhere, and while service abroad is more exotic, the need locally is just as pressing. The service trip abroad was amazing. I was able to see a part of the world I might not otherwise have ever gotten the opportunity to see. For almost two entire weeks I got to know the people of this small village on a first-name basis. Although there was a language barrier, I was struck by how universal so many emotions are and you don't need a translator for that. YouthLINC enabled me to provide myself, through hard work and a dedication to the greater good, a wonderful and touching experience that I will never forget.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The sense of fulfillment. The sense that I truly had to earn my sponsorship through local service enabling me to go to Peru. I didn't buy my way onto the trip. I worked hard.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Top-notch. All of the volunteers were so wonderful and dedicated. In the team everyone was assigned a job with their own responsibilities, and you could always count on your teammates to come through for you.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand. It could offer sponsorships to so many more youth. More youth could dedicate themselves to local service and then experience service abroad. More than the existing four sites could be opened up abroad.

I think this organization does a fantastic job capturing young people's desire for adventure and turning them into lifelong humanitarians. I also love the link between local service and international service. The integrity of the people involved with Youthlinc is right up there at the top of all organizations I've donated to. I will continue to support Youthlinc!

This organization is amazing! YouthLINC provided me with my first international-based volunteer experience and has since propelled me to continue with this kind of work. Thanks to YouthLINC I learned about the needs of my own community in Salt Lake City by volunteering regularly with a local children's museum and then saw the effects of volunteer work while in the village of Kiamuri, Kenya for two weeks over the summer. YouthLINC changed my personal awareness of what it means to care and love and showed me just how much I can do with my own life to help others.

the people I met. Thanks to YouthLINC I met non-profit volunteers throughout the Salt Lake valley, fellow students interested in similar futures as myself from various high schools, colleges, and universities, and made friends throughout Utah and in Kenya

Our Rotary Club in Utah awarded scholarships to high school students in our service area so they could attend Youthlinc activities. We also participated in gathering shoes and other items for their target communities. The most rewarding thing for us was seeing the growth in the students we sent as they reviewed their experiences. This is a remarkable program for everyone involved. Win, Win, Win, straight down the line.

Youthlinc is an incredible organization that sincerely works to change the world, one student at a time. The actions of each member of the organization comes directly from the heart, thereby making Youthlinc's goals a reality.

If Youthlinc had 10 million dollars, it could provide shoes for every single person in each of its countries of impact. Shoes are one of the hard things to get enough of, but one of the most important things, especially in Peru (the country I visited).
