Keeping our teams safe and healthy is our top priority at Youthlinc. We take it very seriously. Here are the precautions we take to make sure you, or your loved one gets home safe and sound. Click the link for a brief slideshow on the Youthlinc International Safety Protocols.

1. We send staff or representatives on site visits before-hand to make an assessment of the destination. In each of the rural villages we stay in, we make certain:


2. We maintain close contact with our in-country coordinators.
Our in-country coordinators are respected Rotarians in their communities, NGO staff, and leaders in their villages. With our students in mind, they help us determine projects, notify us of potential risks, and help us ensure that our transportation company, accommodations and restaurants are credible, safe and appropriate to the needs of our teams.

3. We prepare our teams for their trips.


4. We purchase emergency medical insurance for each team member.
This insurance is part of the cost of the international service trip and is purchased through Wallach and Company, covered by MEDEX HealthCare Global. The insurance includes $250,000 in medical expense benefits, including: accident, sickness, medical evacuation, emergency reunion, repatriation of remains, emergency dental, and $25,000 for accidental death and dismemberment.
