As a partner working with the Youthlinc team in Thailand, we were impressed by the work ethic and interest level of the volunteers to complete their projects. Their hard work and enthusiasm will be remembered by the Burmese community for a long time to come! Thank you.

As a physician, I felt it was time for me to intensify my efforts in educating others on the great field of healthcare. So many have taught me so much throughout my professional career and I wanted to share this knowledge. My desire on this trip was:
1) To educate my team and those we served
that by taking better care of ourselves we can come to take care of others better;
2) To impress upon our team that there are many things we can do to help others;
3) To provide health education on things that could be sustained by those living in Peru after we left;
4) For those we served to know that we truly cared about them and wanted to improve their lives in important ways;
5) For all of us to learn how by working together we become far more effective than if we tried to accomplish these things on our own.
The strength of Youthlinc is that they have an excellent method of training volunteers before they leave through providing local service. By setting high standards of personal conduct the volunteers become ambassadors of humanitarian service, both in our community and worldwide.

Sincerely,
Jerry Sonkens, M.D.

I am a Mentor for Salt Lake County Youth Government. Many of the YouthLINC students are volunteers with our group. Our man focus is on youth homelessness. The YouthINC volunteers are reliable and effective. My oldest daughter went on a YouthLINC trip to Peru and had a life changing experience. She is a strong (6ft) woman who gets teary eyed when talking about her trip. She gets emotional in a good way. The children on her trip touched her deeply. My second daughter will be taking a service trip to Cambodia this summer. It is a relief knowing that she will be a part of a well organized group that will truly make a difference in the world.

I went as a social work mentor. We did construction projects at two schools in the jungle of Thailand as well as built relationships with their students and faculty. YouthLINC is an amazing program that teaches local and international services in order to create lifetime humanitarians. This experience changed my life. To go to a country that we don't speak each others' language and learn to love, grow, play, and serve each other was incredible. The Thai people are so loving and they will forever be in my heart.

I served both as a dental professional and a mentor for the young adults volunteering for this humanitarian experience. Along with providing basic dental and surgical treatments, time was also dedicated toward both adult and child oral and systemic health. I led a team of young adults interested in the dental field that served as assistants and educators of oral hygiene. Mentoring the students was an important and extremely satisfying component of the experience

Very well run non profit designed to gine youth life changing humanitarian volunteer experince at home and in third world countries. I was a volunteer physician on a trip to Africa and was most impressed with the dedication of the adult leaders and enthusiasm of the kids in helping change lives in rural Kenya. The work at a deaf school is ongoing with many return trips helping this segment of the population in many untold ways. This experience has layed the ground work for many of these youth to continue volunteer humanitarian work well into adulthood and for the rest of their lives.

I went to Ocatlan Mexico as a professional mentor -- i am a social worker. I was able to provide consults to families there that had children with disabilities. I learned so much about the wonderful Mexican culture. It was difficult to see how the children's lives were affected by poverty in that they were unable to get many of the services that we take for granted in the US. The Rotary group that sponsored us was so welcoming and helpful.

As the trip leader to Mexico for 3 years, I had the opportunity to really experience Youthlinc. This is an amazing organization for so many reasons. 1. The participants are wonderful people with lots of energy who understand the work it takes to make service effective. 2. The mentors who devote their time, energy and finances, to helping youth from Utah and from the international service sites 3. The Rotarians, both in Utah and abroad, who work so diligently to make the experience a successful one. 4. The communities who open their hearts and their doors to us. The groups from Utah get as much or more than we bring. 5. The mission of Youthlinc goes beyond service to working with communities to help them to be self sustaining in their efforts. A lasting change. I am thankful for all the wonderful relationships and experiences I have had as a result of my time with them and highly recommend Youthlinc to others.

As a member of a local Rotary Club in Thailand, I have had the opportunity to work with YouthLINK on several community service projects. I have been inspired by their enthusiasm and professionalism in helping rebuild schools and orphanages, and in conducting community based health and hygine programs. Their mission of "creating lifetime humanitarians" truely seems to be working, not only among their volunteers, but also the communities they help.

The Great!

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

organizing and implementing community service programs in Thailand, and in inspiring others to join in their efforts.

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

their enthusiasm in helping less fortunate individuals, families, and communities.

profesional and dedited to their cause.

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

change, for the better, a lot of lives in undeveloped and developing countries, and create a greater sense of responsibility in all of us for humanitarian efforts needed to bring many individuals to a better station in life.

Ways to make it better...

I had more resources at my disposal to assist them in their activities.

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

to replicate their initial work in communities to achieve a sustainable course of improvement.

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

I am proud to work with this organization and will continue to muster the resources of our Rotary Club to assist them in their very worthy endeavors.
