I worked with YouthLINK my senior year of high school & traveled with them the following summer to Peru. Of all the experiences in my life, Youthlink was one of the most impacting and far reaching. It made me a more focused and dedicated student in school because I knew I was working towards a valuable goal. It opened my eyes even more than I expected to the cultures of our world and the effects of service to one another. Judy Zone is easily one of the most sincer, hardworking, inspired, dedicated, and caring leaders I've worked under. She has created such a balanced service program. The idea of working locally so we don't forget service can be done in our own towns, working with rotary to better understand the large humanitarian organizatins, and serving abroad on large scale projects that we've all prepaired and put together is a tour de force for teaching and strenghening our youth (and myself at that age.) My sister-in-law was involved later for a project in Kenya, and it too set her on a course of success in her life! The program instilled in me confidence, joy, and dedication in life.

YouthLinc was my first experience out of a country and my fitst time volunteering. I throughly enjoyed working with the people in the program as well as the other volunteers. I had worked with the staff a lot before going to Kenya and while in Kenya. It has defianetly brought me to be more of a humanitarian. I have since continued on to volunteer in China and other locations here in Salt Lake City. This program had some problems at the beggining with communication among volunteers but it gave us all a chance to show leadership and to take part instead of following.

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

Being able to go to another country, knowing we will be safe and knowing that we are able to help so many people. Instead focused on one area we went to several different locations. It spread my horizons and taught me the importance of volunteering

I participated in YouthLINC both as a student and as a student leader. The first summer I went on a trip I was to start medical school the following fall. YouthLINC had a huge impact on the type of medicine that I have decided to practice. My experiences in the Amazon pushed me towards pediatrics and infectious diseases in the hopes of working towards improving the increasing rates of death due to infectious causes in resource poor areas where effective treatments are unavailable. Though I commend YouthLINC for it's incredible projects in the third world, I do hope that as the program expands it will begin to offer it's services to the resource poor areas of the United States, which are as much in need of assistance as those countries that it currently serves. Thank you YouthLINC for enriching my life and introducing me to the changes that just one person can make in this world.

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

seeing the change that occurs in students during these trips from typical US high school students to adults focused on improving their communities and the world at large throughout their lives.

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

expand it's work to include not only other nations, but also areas within the United States that currently are in need of assistance.

I have volunteerd with YouthLINC since I was 15 - 8 great years of being involved with an incredible organization. I think the best thing these guys do is get people involved locally! You really can't understand the whole picture of being a service-minded individual without understanding how that connects you to your own community. Add the educational experience of traveling abroad and seeing some of the most incredible things you'll ever see, and this program is the real deal.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how effectively they teach people how to connect with their community through service.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

maybe not specifically *change* anything, but just to put more structure around the in-country teams.

the amazing people you get to share a year of service with.

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

diverse, passionate, and FUN!

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

genuinely change the way people view humanitarian work. Which would be AWESOME!!

Ways to make it better...

there were a little bit more direction and organization in the international projects.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the same that face any organization. Fundraising, expansion, etc. But of any organization, this one is doing it right!

One thing I'd also say is that...

YouthLINC ROCKS!

I had the privilege of helping Youthlinc organize clothing and other goods for transport to Peru where it would be distributed to the people there. My wife also went with the group as a teacher mentor. We were impressed with the groups organization and hard work. The group leaders and other volunteers were pleasant and eager to help. It was a great experience.

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.
