Each year 250+ Utah secondary and college students participating in the Youthlinc Service Year contribute 22,000+ hours of local service, becoming relied upon volunteers at service sites all over the state. This is the largest – and most long lasting – part of their commitment to participate in the Youthlinc Service Year.
Before they can implement the international service planned in their monthly team meetings, each of these students must contribute 80 hours of local service. Minimally 40 hours of these hours must be volunteered at one location – their main service site.
Encourage these students – who must volunteer 80 hours – to volunteer with you!
If your organization is already in the Local Service Directory, that means a student recommended your organization to us. You are a Bronze Partner!
The first step to become a Silver or Gold Partner is to attend our annual Volunteer Management Training. Click here to read what last year’s attendees had to say about the training.

WHY A YOUTHLINC VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENT TRAINING?
- Since our inception in 1999, we’ve mentored 2,500 students through 200,000 hours of Utah service. We’ve taught 600+ adult professionals how to mentor students.
- Our proven strategies of student leadership, hands-on service, and mentoring allow our students to create an emotional bond with those whom they serve and develop a deep-rooted service ethic, which they carry throughout a lifetime.
- Our Local Service Director has organized and led successful service initiatives over the past 15 years.
- Currently she oversees the 22,000 hours of meaningful service contributed by our Youthlinc Service Year students each year.
As an expert in youth volunteerism, Youthlinc wants to share our knowledge & experience with you so that together, we help instill a service ethic in Utah’s greatest resource–our youth.
We want to thank Chik-fil-A Sugarhouse our sponsor of the 2018 Volunteer Management Training. They have generously donated our lunch for this event. THANK YOU!
