Our Son introduced us to Youthlinc last year and was with the group that served the people of Vietnam this past summer. I have never seen a better organized and managed group that truly walks it's talk that of building lifetime humanitarians, our son hopes to go again this next year.

Thank you Youthlinc for your organization's consistent communication, flexibility, and all your hard work in securing so many donations! Thank you for your cultural sensitivity and for purely serving Asociacion Ak’ Tenamit, not just taking it into your hands, but letting us tell you our needs. It is important to have that sort of consciousness in a group of people who volunteer internationally-- to understand how important it is to help in a sustainable way, empowering people to help themselves or giving them the tools to do so.

But what most impacted me about working with Youthlinc was the sincere connections your young people made with the students at Asociacion Ak' Tenamit. There were many language and cultural barriers, but those were surpassed and many beautiful friendships were cultivated ~ Bianca Gras, Asociacion Ak' Tenamit 2011-2012 Volunteer Coordinator

Our one time involvement with YouthLinc lasted from Aug 07 thru July 08 about once per month until our daughter left on her service mission orgainzed by YouthLinc. Our experience with YouthLinc was fulfilling and rewarding for us, and especially for our daughter Marissa. We felt confident of YouthLinc providing adequate supervision and guidance to facilitate our teen-age daughter to travel to Peru and boat up the Amazon River to the village of Santa Rosa with school supplies, clothing donations, and to work on some building & pathway improvements in the village. In her quest to become a doctor, she saw first-hand the need for the "haves" to help the "have-nots." She returned home as a young woman with a differend perspective on life and how each human can have an effect on others. The organization required that she raise all the funds herself (about $2,500) needed for the the service mission...teaching her the skills required to raise donations for worthy causes. She solicited building supplies from local builders for some of the improvements and organized the sock donations to go with all the shoes that others collected. Each youth took an extra bag full of clothing donations for the children of the village. She held an giant Anaconda on the Amazon, a huge trantula found in their barracks, and caught piranha with the village kids as they gathered water to drink direct from the Amazon River. The skills and memories she acquired will be beneficial throughout the rest of her life.

The Great!

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

seeing how the service mission to Peru affected my daughter and her perspective of mankind in third world countries.

Ways to make it better...

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

encourage them to expand nationwide.

More feedback...

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

the parent-youth involvement and hearing the past experiences of those that preceeded our daughter's service mission.

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

genuine, caring, informative, helpful, professional (local doctor and hospital staff member joined the mission), and concerned about the need to help others.

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

expand the concept nationwide to the ranks of the YouthCorps, Peace Corp.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time and financial means to participate as a volunteer on one of their service missions elsewhere.

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

volunteer staff support for fund raising, administration, service mission site expansion in addition to the places they alreay go (Mexico, Kenya, Peru, Thailand).

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

thank you YouthLinc...THANKS for encouraging our youth to make a difference and join a worthy cause.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
