We rise by lifting others.
Through our community service programs we provide volunteer-ships both in United States and overseas for high school and college students to give them opportunity to get into community, be part of, and have a true understanding of it. These programs also foster students' self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction.
Youth Islan NY Uganda Project I
As Youth Island we have been having annual international trip. These annual trips are to 3rd world countries and with our group we come up with project, then collect donations and accomplish our projects. This year with our group we went to Uganda, to do 3 projects that our group came up with the first project was to do a meat drive, the 2nd project was a health screen because most of the people there don’t have the chance to get checkups done, and the 3rd project was to help out orphanages and a school.
Youth Islan NY Uganda Project II
Over the summer, we had gone on a trip with Youth Island NYC to volunteer in Uganda. It was an experience filled with happiness and emotions. As a group of five girls, we volunteered at three orphanages. We painted their classrooms, distributed clothes, toys, food, and school supplies. We had also painted a run-down women’s care clinic and visited the manager of a hospital in hopes of returning again. Using the money that we had raised throughout the year, we were able to build a water well in a village a couple hours away from the city of Jinja. We had been rewarded by the Ugandans’ bright smiles and endless gratitude, as they were able to pump fresh water and celebrated the occasion. The trip to Uganda was a wonderful experience, and one we would definitely go on again.
