Youthlinc was an awesome experience, an experience of a lifetime! Their equal focus on local and international service truly helped instill a desire to serve. With an 80 hour minimum local service qualification, all members of Youthlinc had to sacrifice a lot in order to be eligible for this trip. We had to put other things on hold as we diligently worked to get 80 hours. And the international service was an experience I would not trade for anything. Seeing the eyes of Malagasy men, women, and children light up over the smallest things was something I will not forget. We worked alongside the people and helped make lasting impacts. We did not just go in and throw money at a problem. The experience I had with Youthlinc is something I am immensely grateful for! It has changed my life for the better and I hope to be able to continue to serve as Youthlinc has inspired me to do so well.
This organization has given me the opportunity to change the lives of those locally and internationally. I had the chance to travel to Peru and help the villagers of Santa Isabel. It was an amazing experience and something I will never forget.
Youthlinc provides the best experience out there! I went on a trip to Madagascar last summer and I can honestly say it was an experience like no other. Youthlinc is very organized and fun to be a part of. I think the best part is that you not only get to serve internationally but locally as well.
Youthlinc is amazing!!! You learn so much during your service year, and experience more then you could possibly imagine during your international trip.
I had such and AMAZING experience with Youthlinc. They are an amazing organization. And are very put together and know what they are doing!! I had such an incredible experience with the touring of the country and also being able to put myself to work and help out such amazing people. Youthlinc definitely should be one of your top choices for a non-profit organization. Love every second of it!!!
I had the best time I have ever had in my life. I got to meet so many people that i made connections with. Youthlinc has changed my life.
Youthlinc is an amazing non-profit that allows people to learn the importance of service not only internationally but also locally. It helps you gain perspective about the world and also your community and what you can do to help. The experience I had with youthlinc was unforgettable and I'm so excited to be working with them again.
Madagascar was my second youthlinc trip. My first trip was several years ago to Cambodia. There really aren't words for what Youthlinc has done for me in my life. It has truly changed me forever. I would recommend it to everyone! With Youthlinc you are able to be completely invested in your international trip due to the experiences you get to have each month for a year leading up to the trip. You are able to do local service, plan out projects that will be done in country, fundraise, and work with your team to create a successful trip. This makes the trip so much more meaningful. I will never forget the things both Cambodia and Madagascar have taught me. I have learned what true humility is, how to serve, how to work, and how to love. I have learned that we all speak the same language- it just may sound a little different. I have learned that even the littlest things can make a difference and change the world. The experiences I have had thanks to Youthlinc will forever remain close to my heart and for that I will be forever grateful
About a year ago I joined Youthlinc as a service student and went to Cambodia as my international site. It was the best experience of my life and I'm so grateful for it! The organization is very well planned and executed. Everything that needed to happen for successful travel and productivity on site happened because of the preparation and help Youthlinc provided. Not only was serving a phenomenal experience but I was able to meet so many people who will be life long friends and I developed better leadership, communication and responsibility skills. I'm so grateful for Youthlinc!
Youthlinc is an incredible organization. I was a participant for the 2015 service year. I went to Cambodia, and it was incredible. Youthlinc helped me all along the way and they truly do an amazing job. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to work with Youthlinc. Life changing!
