Youthlinc challenges youth to serve in thier local community for an opportunity to give service in a foreign country. Their mission of creating Life Long Humanitarians is unique but I have witnessed year after year young people changed as a result of giving of themselves. Their hearts are made larger and the world is made smaller as participants learn the joy of humanitarian service both far and near their homes. Working and planning with others goings to poor areas in Peru, Mexico, Thialand or Kenya members of the group meet monthly to organize their service and to report on the local service they have provided. My daughter went to Kenya five years ago. To this day, she is constantly giving service to someone. She is just one of hundreds that Youthlinc has helped to become a Life Long Humanitarian.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Santa Rosa on the banks of the Amazon River. Friendships were created working together pouring concrete and teaching in the school.
