The Youthlinc Service Year is a nine-month program designed to engage high school and college-aged students, or “humanitarians,” in their local communities and communities around the world.
From November-May, teams of humanitarians and adult mentors prepare education, community health, business, vocational, environmental, and cultural projects for their two-week capstone international trips. Meanwhile, humanitarians are completing 50 hours of service in their own communities to build skills necessary to complete meaningful and sustainable humanitarian work.
