YouthLINC--a local humanitarian organization--has worked with area youth to put together a directory of service-oriented organizations and sites.
Using the directory, students will be able to learn how they can directly help others.
The directory includes agencies and organizations that help people with disabilities and disease, the elderly, and the disadvantaged of all ages and ethnic groups. The directory also includes organizations that deal with environmental issues, a growing concern among today's youth.
"The idea of the directory is to provide students a wide range of choices for service while ensuring them a good experience for the time invested," said YouthLINC local service coordinator Rebecca Burton.
