I traveled to Thailand with YOUTHLINC this last summer as a volunteer, mentor, and translator. Having lived in Thailand before, I was impressed with YOUTHLINC's ability to find and reach out to communities that had a true and sincere need for help. YOUTHLINC's mobilization of students, volunteers, and supplies was very impressive as they were able to accomplish more than the locals ever expected. The students' work ethic was outstanding and a great example to the locals. Many local Thai people expressed to me the gratitude they felt for the assistance they received in their community. I had a wonderful and positive experience with the people involved with YOUTHLINC. Thanks to Dana Curtis and Judy Zone for extending to me an opportunity to participate with YOUTHLINC.

Soon after I first met my wife...she went on a YouthLINC trip to Peru. I wish I could have been involved in her experience. She came back so inspired! YL has become a permanent fixture in my life as my wife is now the YL accountant. We now have a beautiful daughter who I know will have her life changed by an YL experience. SConger

I went on a YouthLINC Alumni trip to the Amazon jungle of Peru. As a Rotary Club member, our club has supported YouthLINC for the last six years, so I've heard many students report of their experiences. I decided to see just what they were doing. Now I'll be a member of their Board.

The Great!

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

seeing the changes in both the student's lives as well as the people in the village where the students serve. The tears on the cheeks of both groups showed the effect the short but intense visit made on everybody.

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

knowing that it will create humanitarians for life. Anything that gets kids out of a very non-diverse place like Utah and into the real world can only create a desire to serve others, appreciate what you have and hope for peace.

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

all very dedicated to what they were doing.

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

do a lot of good.

I participated in early meetings for a Kenya trip as a possible mentor, and was very impressed with the well organized nature of the program, as led by Judy Zone and Dana Curtis. As it turned out there were too many mentors and I was not able to attend, but my friend Catalina and her daughter Andrea did, and they returned with very good reports on how valuable an experience they and the students had, they saw a variety of social aspects and issues facing rural Kenyans today. The trip was well organized, and they were able to help build a school. Youthlink is a top-notch organization.

YouthLinc is a fabulous organization with a respectable vision. I know they have positively affected students lives and have given many students wonderful opportunities. I feel all the staff of YouthLinc truly care about the youth of today.

youthlinc gave me a chance to experience life like I have never known. I do not think that I would have been able to experience giving to such a small community in Kenya if I had not gone through Youthlinc. I can say that I have been changed because of the experience and I will never forget the lessons that I learned.

YouthLINC, I can honestly say changed my life. Their goal of creating lifetime humanitarians, is a high one at that, but its happening. I am involved in my community and look for ways to make the world a better place. I am slightly addicted to service asa result as well. I have learned important leadership skills and really learned what it means to care. Not just for my community but for everyone. People all need something and its up to you to find what they need and help them get it. It's an incredible program, bringing humanitarianism full circle.

My experience with YouthLINC has two sides. I absoluetly loved the entire Thailand experience, but as for the at-home experience, it could have been better. When in Thailand our schedule was well planned and we had good amounts of down time after working so hard at the orphanage. I also appreciated our expedition leader and the fabulous job she did. She and Judy were always giving 110% when it came to helping us or those we were there to help.

YouthLINC didn't continue to expect me to participate years after my initial service project. I liked their program, but I don't always want to work with them.

My wife and I have been involved with YouthLinc for 5+ years and have seen and heard the many positive results from both the young people actually doing the work for the needy in our country and abroad but with those volunteering and raising funds for the programs. Our hats are off to Judy Zone and her great staff!! Ron and Barb Stevens

As a volunteer, leader and mentor with Youth Linc in Piedras Negras, Mexico in 2003 I found this organization to really care about where they spent time helping internationally. It has taught so many of us the real value of what is really important in life. The students and volunteers in the program can never imagine this wonderful experience without participating in the program.
