Hey Nepal July team members! We are excited to start the 2016-2017 Service Year with you. We know you met your Team Leader and Assistant Team Leader at General Orientation (pssst … ¬†read more about them here). We also want to make sure you’re familiar with the awesome Alum Leaders on your team!
Alum Leaders are another link in the chain of command on a Youthlinc team. They serve as role models for student participants, specialize in creating a positive atmosphere for their team locally and internationally, work in partnership with mentors to oversee students in their appointed committees, and help Youthlinc instill a lifetime service ethic in young people. These individuals will be great resources for you  throughout the year!



“Hi my name is Sammy Hind. I go to Westlake High School. This year I am a junior. I have wanted to become a teacher for a long time. I have always loved being around kids and teaching them new things. When I went to Africa and I taught six different classes I knew I definitely wanted to become a teacher. It was always one of those things I would think about. Now I know. Youthlinc has taught me so much already and going on another trip will teach me even more and at the same time I will be helping others that will be going on there first humanitarian trip with Youthlinc.”




“My name is Braydon Carter, I’m a Junior at Lehi High School, and I love to be involved! At school I am in student council and part of the sports marketing team, I also participate in five clubs. I love language and I am currently learning Spanish and Chinese, wanting to start Russian in the near future. Most importantly, I am a member of the LDS church and helping people is my number one priority. Thats why I do youthlinc it gives me an oppritunity to humble myself and help those in need.”




“Hi, I am Hallie Wilkinson. I go to Wasatch High School and am a member of the student government. I love art, history and spending time with friends and family. Jamming out to music in my car is one of my favorite pass times. I am grateful for opportunities to learn and serve. My last Youthlinc trip was to Cambodia in 2015. It was the best experience of my life and I am so excited to be an Alum Leader. Serving people is unlike anything else, and that’s why I joined Youthlinc again. I love making a difference, even if it’s small, it’s important to someone. Seeing the joy on people’s faces is extraordinary. Helping people is wonderful and I love it. I’m very excited to serve my team and the international site this summer!”

“Hi I’m Whitney Cloward! I’m an alum leader for the Nepal 2017 team. I think service is the most humbling thing you can do and Youthlinc has helped me get involved. Last year I went to Cambodia and it was a lot of hard work but I developed so many lasting relationships and learned many life lessons. Seeing things first hand, your planning paying off, and getting to know those you are helping personally is so rewarding. I love doing international and local service and am super excited for this opportunity.”
