Here's what participants say about Young Neighbors in Action

"I chose YNIA for my summer service week because it is one of those opportunities that doesn't come very often. It is an opportunity to grow as a person while serving those that need it the most. It is an eye-opening experience that truly changes you! You learn to appreciate what you have and give to those who don't. It is an experience I wouldn't trade for anything! All three of my YNIA trips taught different life lessons and made me, ME!" (Jeni)

"We chose YNIA for our service week because of previous experience. YNIA provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for individuals to explore themselves and learn what they have to give others. It also takes them out of their comfort zones away from distractions such as family, friends, work, etc. Their whole focus is the week at hand, the assigned projects, and their peers." (Richard Wooten)

"I chose YNIA because my brother went before and told me it was the best week of his life. I tried it for myself and found out what he meant. It was a great week of service, prayer, and making great new friends. It was the best week of my life too." (Cory)
