Youthlinc
August 13, 2012

YouthLinc promotes involving HIgh School & College youths in community service with the additional reward of international service. I have been the nurse/mentor for 8 trips including Mexico, Peru, Thailand, Cambodia & Kenya. It is such a pleasure to observe the changes that occur in the students as they prepare for these experiences, deal with foreign travel, strange customs and foods. There are building projects, health & education classes developed and taught to the in-country students and/or their families, fund raising, Fun & Health Fairs. Students are selected in November and meet monthly until departure. Community hours of service must be completed before leaving the USA. A great opportunity for all concerned.

YouthLINC offers outstanding opportunities for young adults to experience humanitarian service in their own communities as well as in other parts of the world. I enjoy observing these young adults as they learn to adapt to new customs & living situations in foreign places. One student is now on her way to graduate school in International Studies based on her experiences with YouthLINC. Another is on her way to med school.
