SERVICE

Local Service is an integral part to the Youthlinc Service Year. All humanitarians in the Youthlinc Service year will complete 50 hours of service in their local community before their capstone trip. At least 30 of these hour will be completed at one place, your main service site. The remainder can be fulfilled with miscellaneous service hours.

SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

You will want to find an organization that you can volunteer with on a regular schedule. Check out the local service directory for service opportunities.

You will need to get all hours logged and verified through the Local Service Directory. Your assistant team leader can help you with this task.

Complete your service and reflect on how it has effected you, and how your service has positively impacted the population you are serving.

MAIN SERVICE

Your main service site will be the place that you do most of your service. We have found that by becoming a continued and relied upon volunteer, you will start to see the positive change you can make in your own community. The requirements for Main Service Site are as follows:

-Positive Mentoring Atmosphere

-Hands on in person sevice

-Genuine Need

MISCELLANEOUS

Miscellaneous service can be completed in many different ways. The only requirements for what is allowed is that you can answer yes to the following three questions:

-Is this service helping someone who has a genuine need?
