Youthlinc far exceeded any expectations I had of them. I am so glad I got myself involved in this incredible organization and will be for the rest of my life. They are organized, understanding, helpful, and truly care about their cause and every single person involved with the organization. They work so hard to make the service year the best ever and it always is. You will never regret being involved with Youthlinc because they provide opportunities you cannot get anywhere else. Meeting new people in your community and all over the world, gaining a life-long love for service, being completely changed by the people you meet on your trip and through your local service, and most importantly making a change. I love Youthlinc and recommend it to anyone!
I work as a full-time employee of Youthlinc, and am thrilled to walk into the office each day. The mission of creating lifetime humanitarians is what initially attracted me to Youthlinc, but it is the effectiveness in which Youthlinc achieves our mission that keeps me here. Over the course of about a year, our young participants take ownership of positive change, both locally and internationally. Through mentorship and being responsible for planning service activities, our participants gain leadership experience, an ability to work with others in a group, and a global perspective that will serve them for a lifetime. Students come into the program excited, but overwhelmed or even lost as to how they might make a difference. They walk out of Youthlinc feeling proud of their accomplishments, and with a confidence that they're capable of moving mountains. I don't believe there is greater or more satisfying work than that. It is truly an honor and a joy to be apart of an organization that is doing so much good in the world.
