Youthlinc has been a blessing in my life. I learned so much when I traveled to Kenya with them back in 2015. It was an unforgettable memory and helped me grow more love for service. Youthlinc's whole goal to create lifetime humanitarians and they definitely made one out of me.
I was able to travel to Peru with Youthlinc in the summer of 2016. I have continued my involvement with Youthlinc through their Real Life program, as a Real Life Intern. The lessons that I have learned from Youthlinc have truly changed my life and who I am as a person. Youthlinc has encouraged me to get far outside of my comfort zone and get involved in the needs of my community. I have been able to met and connect with so many amazing people that I otherwise would have never had the opportunity to met. My life is for the better because of the experience and opportunities I have had through Youthlinc and I am so grateful for every part of it.
I can honestly say that my experience with Youthlinc has changed my life. I got involved with Youthlinc when I participated in a service year in 2014-2015. I was able to volunteer with Real Life and I have continued my relationship with Youthlinc by serving as a Real Life Intern and I am currently involved in my second service year. Youthinc's mission to create lifetime humanitarians has completely fostered an incredible love of service in me. Youthlinc is able to provide a community through service while making a significant, positive impact on populations it serves. Youthlinc allowed me to gain a perspective on serving others that I believe you cannot receive anywhere else. My experiences within the Youthlinc community have inspired me to continue service and the attitudes learned through service within my academic life and beyond. Words cannot express how much I appreciate this organization and all that it has for the community and for me.
My experience with Youthlinc was amazing! Our group leaders were incredibly organized and did a fantastic job. I was in such good hands on the trip and the experience and reliability of the leaders and adult mentors kept me at ease. The service I was able to do in country as well as locally is something I will never forget. You must me dedicated and willing to work hard, but I highly suggest applying for this program!
I absolutely ADORE Youthlinc. My favorite thing about Youthlinc is that they are sustainable. Youthlinc works hard to create lifetime humanitarians and truly help those who are in need at home and abroad. I have never had a less than amazing experience with Youthlinc!
The greatest life-changing experiences I've ever had were because of my involvement with Youthlinc! One of my favorite elements of youthlinc is that they require students to do 80 hours of local service, 40 of which are at a main service site. This made a massive impact on my life because it taught me what youthlinc's motto of becoming a "lifetime humanitarian" truly means. A "lifetime humanitarian" is someone who understands that there is always a need, no matter where you are in the world, and then fills that need with service. Youthlinc teaches it's students to be a consistent and relied-upon volunteer rather than a once-in-a-while volunteer. The life skills and lessons that I have learned through being a member of the Youthlinc family is something I will value for the rest of my life.
Youthlinc is a great way to become a humanitarian for life. They teach you great things to help you become involved in your own community. They also teach you how to be a humanitarian for others in other countries. I have loved being able to participate in the Youthlinc adventure.
Youthlinc has changed my whole outlook on how service is supposed to work. Their emphasis on both local and international service is the reason why I chose to serve for the first time in 2012. I've been to Cambodia twice with them now and have had an amazing experience every time I volunteer with them.
I went with Youthlinc to Nepal last summer in 2016 and I absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend becoming a part of Youthlinc. Youthlinc not only takes students on international service trips, but they make sure students serve in their communities prior to their service trip. I served 80 hours at Primary Children's Hospital Kids Crew prior to going to Nepal. Youthlinc truly cares about making an impact on students' lives by creating lifetime humanitarians. I loved my experience with Youthlinc so much that I decided to go on another service trip to Madagascar. This organization has taught me so much about myself and the importance of service locally and internationally. So check out Youthlinc today!
I first started my experiences with Youthlinc in 2014 as a student on the Cambodia team. I fell in love with the program and went again the following year to Kenya and will be traveling to Nepal this summer. Youthlinc has helped me to discover my love for service and to grow as a person. My experiences abroad have changed my life and have helped me to decide on my future career. I am so grateful to Youthlinc for giving me the opportunity to serve and to love people I would have never met otherwise.
Every experience I have had with Youthlinc has been extremely positive. I have loved being involved with this organization since 2011. It honestly has changed my life. The focus on local service is incredible and helps so many people. The international service is an eye-opening and deeply meaningful experience. I have nothing but great things to say about this organization.
