New Youthlinc students choose their local main service sites, where they can become relied-upon volunteers during their Service Year, contributing minimally 80 hours during the school year.  We require our student participants to do hands-on service with genuinely needy individuals or communities.

Service Year students and mentors also attend monthly meetings where they prepare for the international experience. Students take leadership roles in planning the activities in-country, mentored by the adult professionals and student leaders on each team.

After fulfilling local service requirements, Youthlinc students take their commitment to another level by participating in a two-week experience in a developing country.

Youthlinc currently has seven sites for international service: CambodiaKenyaGuatemalaPeru, NepalThailand, and Madagascar.
