Leadership Development

  • 9-month leadership development program with integrated local service component

  • Connect and build friendships with your team for 9 months prior to travel

  • Projects relate to community health, business & vocational skills, ecological improvements, construction, cultural exchange, and education

What's Included?

  • All meals, accommodation, transportation, & clean water

  • Excursion to Taj Mahal and trekking near Bhutan border

  • Travel insurance, medical professional travels with team, 1:3 ratio of adult:students

Through our Nepali partner, Binod Rai, Youthlinc was able to send a Global Community Leadership team to India in summer 2023 in partnership with Utah State University. This gave us the opportunity to evaluate some communities in India as an option for the Service Year. Jessica Roueche, Director of Youthlinc’s Global Community Leadership program, was able to do an in-depth site visit at Chisang to prepare for a Service Year team working there in 2024. Jessica was able to evaluate project potential, safety, accommodation, meals, excursions, and entering into a sustainable & mutually beneficial partnership with the local communities. The program will collaborate with Insight Himalaya and Waves For Water India with Binod Rai and Panu Lucksom as the primary in-country coordinators.
