Requirements and Tasks
I was a mentor on the Kenya 2013 trip. It sounds cliche, but it truly was an experience of a lifetime and one I know will live within me forever. The other mentors were amazing people, all with unique gifts to give. The students surpassed expectations I had before our adventure. They worked tirelessly and always with a smile and a positive attitude. Their compassion was an incredible model for my young son who accompanied us. Our team spoke often about service as belonging and never was it more true than with this group and with the communities that we visited. One of the priests at the school said, “It only takes a minute to know someone, but you remember them for a lifetime.” I feel blessed to have made this journey in the company of so many stellar individuals.
"Being an adult mentor for Youthlinc really felt more like being the luckiest mom out there. Being a "mom" to 23 other kids was very sweet. I wished all their parents could have been there to see the selfless and wonderful moments of love. I know they'd be as proud as I was."
