My husband and I served as the Team Leaders for a two week humanitarian mission to Rio Dulce, Guatemala with Youthlinc. We love the motto of Youthlinc, "Creating Lifetime Humanitarian." We enjoyed planning and overseeing this trip but we especially enjoyed watching the growth in the students we served. This experience truly changed their lives. We are thankful to be affiliated with an organization the empowers youth to serve both locally and internationally.

My daughter Alycia and I both have the priviledge of being associated with Youthlinc and are part of the Kenya 2011 team this year. Youthlinc is an amazing organization and we are both grateful to be a part of it. The founder of Youthlinc, Judy Zone, has a remarkable passion for this work, "creating lifetime humanitarians." Her passion and zeal for this work is contagious to all those who have the priviledge of working with her. As a mentor it has been a choice experience to watch the youth grow as they prepare for their international service trip. They have become great leaders. It has also been exciting to hear about their their local service projects. They share these experiences with great enthusiasm. I have been involved with many other humanitarian organizations. Each plays a wonderful part in the community. Youthlinc, however, is unique and special because of the change and enthusiasm that is made manifest in each youth that participates. I will always be grateful for the privilege of this outstanding opportuntiy.
