Youthlinc is an amazing program. Well thought out and planned in empowering students and creating sustainable change in developing countries. It is not just a service trip to provide humanitarian aide. It involves students for an entire year. Students must complete the required number of service hours locally in order to go internationally. This requirement ensures that students are invested in the program and truly desire to make a difference both locally and globally. Opportunities for fundraising, lesson planning, project planning are presented for the students which encourages them to do new things, pushing themselves to greater heights. The responsibility is great, but the reward is even greater! It is a life changing experience as in country there is the opportunity to provide physical change while the villagers provide emotional, mental and spiritual change. These people open their hearts and homes to us providing a home away from home. They are family by the end of the two weeks. The examples of pure love, generosity, and genuine kindness while living simply and practically are refreshing and stimulating.
