The Youthlinc Service Year curriculum is designed to engage youth actively in local and global humanitarian efforts and give them the leadership skills and experience to begin to make a difference in their own communities.
Students accepted into the program make a commitment to volunteer a total of 80 hours in their local communities. This is the Local Service portion of the Service Year.
Students and adult mentors plan and prepare to carry out humanitarian projects at our international sites for two weeks in June or July as a capstone to their Local Service efforts.
Projects pertaining to construction, community health, education, cultural exchange, vocational training, and business development are addressed. All projects are requested by the people in the areas we serve.
“Before Youthlinc, I was not extremely aware about how much my community needed help. It made me aware of what I could do to help my community, and motivated me to do so.”

"I am grateful for Youthlinc and the opportunity that they have provided me and so many others to travel to other countries and to be completely immersed in a new culture. Most importantly I am grateful for what they have taught be about service. Youthlinc's mission is Creating Lifetime Humanitarians and they have made one out of me."

"Being an adult mentor for Youthlinc really felt more like being the luckiest mom out there. Being a "mom" to 23 other kids was very sweet. I wished all their parents could have been there to see the selfless and wonderful moments of love. I know they'd be as proud as I was."
