This year 236 Youthlinc Service Year students are working hard to fulfill the Youthlinc local service requirement by contributing 80 local service hours, with minimally 40 of those hours at a main service site, by June 1st. Collectively, our students will contribute 18,880+ hours of local service. We have been checking in with our students’ volunteer supervisors to see how things are going. The responses were very positive – Youthlinc students stand out because they are reliable and engaged volunteers!
Here are what some of the volunteer supervisors had to say.
Things are going well with the Youthlinc volunteers. I hear good reports from my Activities Director that they are all very helpful and caring with our residents. We really appreciate their hard work! -Linnea Ketcher, Volunteer Supervisor, Beehive Homes
I really appreciate the service your participants provided at our annual Soup & Art Fundraiser. –Bonnie Nell, Volunteer Supervisor, Community Nursing Services
We LOVE the Youthlinc volunteers! They are dedicated and delightful. Brylie, Gabby, and Tosh are all helpful and so fun to be around. Thank you for sending such good volunteers. We deeply appreciate every single minute that they are here. We’re sad to see summer come, but we know they will be awesome on their respective trips. –Gina Smith, Volunteer Supervisor, Courage Reins Therapeutic Riding Center
Alexis and Savannah are so special. Such sweet old souls as I would say. The residents adore them and they are willing to do anything we need. They’re great! -Shelby, Volunteer Supervisor, The Family Tree
I want you to know how much I appreciated Jill, Madison, and Olivia. They were excellent with our kids. They were so kind and patient with my kids. Our kids are a handful too. Thank you for always sending the best volunteers to our program. -Linda Martinez Saville, Executive Director, The Sandy Club
Things are going really well! All of our volunteers from Youthlinc have been telling me how much fun they are having and how they want to continue volunteering at Treehouse even after they finish their required hours for their service trip! I really could not ask for better volunteers! Amber, Cassandra and Smith have all been so nice and the staff just absolutely love working along side them. They are helpful and really try to help the visitors who come to the Museum. Thanks so much for partnering with us and for recommending Treehouse to great youth volunteers! -Courtnee Goodwin, Volunteer Supervisor, Treehouse Children’s Museum
Olivia is an amazing asset to our program! She works incredibly well with the kids, and it’s very nice to have her to help with their homework. We appreciate her so much! -Melissa Andrews, Whittier Extended Day Coordinator
Mallory has been such a great help in our program! She always shows up with a positive attitude, and never hesitates to jump right in any activity the kids are apart of! Mallory has been a great mentor to our students, and I know they all enjoy her company! We are truly lucky to have her apart of the YMCA! -Lindsey Ryan, Volunteer Supervisor, YMCA
Camilla is very dependable and reliable. She comes sometimes 3 times a week and she works very well with the kids. I am really hoping that when she is finished with her volunteer hours she can get hired on as a sub. She is awesome! She does everything she is asked and never has a bad attitude. You can tell some volunteers don’t really want to be volunteers but not with her. I can tell she wants to be helpful and there for the kids. -Jamie Nelson, Volunteer Supervisor, YMCA Program at Fox Hills Elementary
Britney is really good at math. She helps us a lot in that area with our advanced kids. She is always smiling and playful with the kids. -Jamie Nelson, Volunteer Supervisor, YMCA Program at Fox Hills Elementary
