Review for Youthlinc, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have done two trips with Youthlinc, the first as a student going to Kenya and the second as an alumni leader going to Thailand. During both of my trips, I felt that we were able to not only provide help in completing many construction projects and teaching the people valuable vocational and business skills, but we were able to learn so much about their respective cultures. Youthlinc not only emphasizes helping the communities through construction and teaching, but emphasizes learning to understand people of a different culture and appreciating their culture.

I also love Youthlinc because it stresses the importance of performing local service that helps students learn responsibility, commitment, and how to interact with others professionally. Students become so aware of the fact that local service is so easy to perform and is the type of service one can see lasting results with over time. Youthlinc also has amazing leaders and staff that wish to know every student personally. While the leaders provide guidance and supervision throughout the whole service year, they allow the students to create and organize their projects that are to be performed in-country. Overall, Youthlinc is an amazing organization for introducing students to local and international service.

Rating: 5 stars  

I returned to Youthlinc in 2013 to be an Alumni Leader for the Thailand team. It was amazing getting to experience helping other teenagers make a change in the world, both locally and internationally. Locally, everyone worked hard to serve their communities by consistently volunteering at various sites, while internationally, we all committed ourselves to helping the generous Thai and Burmese people around us. Youthlinc provided an excellent avenue for young adults to experience serving others while learning about life and the world from the people they served.
