Maria is great. She is a lot of fun and is always willing to help out. She has a great rapport with the residents. Thank you for sending her our way. We love her!
Carrie, Katie, Bailey, and Hailey are such valued volunteers for us! They all are so positive and helpful and willing to do whatever is asked of them! I really am grateful to be involved with them and the Youthlinc program.
CJ has been a positive addition to our volunteer pool here at The Salvation Army in Ogden. He has had a positive spirit and a “can do” attitude while volunteering in our food pantry, as well as, in our outdoor canteen. CJ demonstrates an ability to accomplish great things looking forward and is serving his community well. – Angelica Garcia-Wood, Volunteer Coordinator
Things are going great here with students from Youthlinc! We are especially appreciative of the consistency of all Youthlinc-ers. They come every week reliably and enthusiastically! We have 6 volunteers from Youthlinc, serving across many of our departments—the Inpatient department, Recreational Therapy, Front Desk Greeters, and as Prosthetic and Orthotic assistants. Many of them have expressed that their positions have been very rewarding. We are so grateful for the connection with your organization! We will be sad when these volunteers leave—when it happens, please send more our way! – Torill Contos, Volunteer Coordinator
Jet has been a wonderful volunteer! She just finished volunteering here last week and I really hope she decides to come back one day or apply for a staff position. While she was at Neighborhood House, Jet volunteered in a preschool classroom as an aid and also acted as our Lego League Coach. The Lego League position was particularly challenging but Jet rose to the occasion, learning the curriculum and working with our kids on their projects. The teacher who used to run the Lego League unexpectedly left Neighborhood House for another opportunity and we were scrambling to find someone to fill the position last minute. Our Lego League would not have existed this term without Jet, plain and simple. We are so grateful that she acted as our coach this term! I have had great experiences with Youthlinc volunteers. They are dedicated young people who I know I can rely on as volunteers. Jet is no exception. – Lena Bain, Community Engagement Coordinator
We have had quite a few Youthlinc volunteers, I always appreciate how ready they are to jump right in and take initiative to help serve! Our residents love interacting with all of the volunteers different personalities. In my experience most of the volunteers from Youthlinc have been very driven, responsible, and caring for our residents. – Kylie Farah, Volunteer Supervisor
I just wanted to express my appreciation for Youthlinc and the help that both Capri and Edna bring to our site. Our kids have grown attached to Capri and Edna and run to the door to greet them each time they come in. Both volunteers are enthusiastic, dependable, and immensely helpful while working with our youth. Capri and Edna help youth with their homework, sports, arts, and recreational time. I have observed both to be extremely kind and caring to the kids as well as efficient in completing any tasks given to them. It has been a pleasure working with them both. – Cassie Crump, Volunteer Supervisor
