I am completely sold on Youthlinc's program. As a parent I was a little concerned when my daughter wanted to join youthlinc and travel to Peru to help there. I loved the idea but wanted to make sure she was with a good organization that would keep her safe as well. Youthlinc provided the support structure along with good leaders and medical personnel, all there for the volunteers to keep them healthy and safe. They took good care of my daughter when she did get sick upon arrival in Peru, and she went on to have a fabulous experience. Along with the service in Peru, my favorite part of the program is the hours of service they are required to put in to their own community before going abroad. Youthlinc is the best organization of its kind that I have found.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the life of my daughter, and her ability to see outside of herself to the needs of her community, and the world.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase the availability of sponsorships so that more youth can participate.
