Maximizing young leaders' potential to impact their world through public health, education, and sports initiatives

YFI Programs

The vast majority of schools in the U.S. require students, especially those in high school, to perform a certain number of community service hours before graduating. As a nonprofit organization, YFI is able to sign off on forms schools and school districts have for verifying those hours (all forms from around the country YFI has certified for students who have participated in its programs have stated that organizations must be nonprofit). Most YFI programs do have a service component to them, though they vary in total number of hours (programs range from 20-80 hours of service).

Abeadze Dominase, Ghana, Africa

"I am amazed at how much I learned not only about medical disease prevention, but additionally what a difference I made in a culture and community different than my own. Traveling to Ghana, Africa was a journey that took me not only halfway around the globe, but also to places within myself that I didn’t know even existed."

"This experience is bar none one of the most indelible experiences I've ever had in my entire life. This is something that's very hard to do - if not impossible - anywhere else. Being able to have hands-on medical experience at such a young age is amazing. This program really stirs up enthusiasm in the students because it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we will never get anywhere else."
