Youthlinc Service Year
The Youthlinc Service Year is a unique opportunity designed to engage high school and college students in their local communities and communities abroad.
Students are accepted into the Service Year program in the fall and placed onto a team of students and mentors from across Utah. Each team works together throughout the year, meeting monthly, to prepare education, community health, vocational, business, and cultural exchange projects for a two week international trip the following summer. Youthlinc currently takes teams to eight different countries.
Once placed on a team, students commit to completing 80 hours of service in their own community to prepare for their team’s international trip. The Service Year allows students to build leadership and interpersonal skills, and provides them with the tools to make meaningful relationships and change both locally and abroad.
