The backbone of daily operations at Youthlinc is the staff. We are able to accomplish and carry out all that we do because of the care and dedication they takes every day.
It has not been easy for the staff to have essentially every aspect of their job change in one way or another due to the pandemic. They have been flexible, innovative, and gracious as we have moved many operations virtually, have managed disappointments from our volunteers because of postponing trips, and have had to create or adjust many job functions we normally take for granted.
Youthlinc is solid and professional and the staff is a large part of that. Thank you to all of the staff members that had a part this past year in propelling Youthlinc and our mission forward.

A note from Jacque Millard, the current President of the Youthlinc Board of Directors:
Although Youthlinc has faced unique challenges during this past year, we have also had many successes.
I am grateful to the various volunteers and donors who have continued to support the organization. We have adjusted to and forged new paths to continue doing impactful work as we develop young humanitarians, support the local refugee youth population, and collaborate with our local and international service partners.
I’m particularly excited about the progress on our capital campaign this past year as we work toward our goal of building a new community center in Murray, Utah where we will expand Real Life refugee programming, continue to train hundreds of new humanitarians each year, and to be a resource to the local nonprofit community as a place for training, events, and community building.
As we look toward 2021, I am filled with optimism about the future. We know our communities and volunteers are eager to have more face-to-face and hands-on service opportunities. I am grateful for the work and care of the Youthlinc Board of Directors and our amazing director, Justin Powell, who are guiding the organization through this complex time and are propelling our mission of creating lifetime humanitarians forward.
