Youthlinc is a great non-profit organization that really helps youth become lifelong humanitarians. Rather than simply focus on a short international trip that, while worthwhile, may not change behavior, Youthlinc encourages service and leadership for an entire year. Everyone on our team did service in the local community, becoming relied upon volunteers at a site of the student's choosing. We met as a team once a month giving plenty of opportunities for leadership and growth. The international service trip was the icing on the cake. We worked hand in hand with local Thai villagers at a school. This collaboration ensures that villagers are invested in their future, rather than simply receiving a handout. Our team had an excellent experience as we built two buildings for the school to use, taught English, provided medical care and health education, and held cultural exchange panels. The best part was simply interacting with the Thai students and opening our hearts to them!
