Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Youth Making A Difference (YMAD)'s mission is two-fold: 1) Our most important focus is on developing teens into leaders. We do this through a year-long program which includes leadership training, fundraising, community service, and a 16-day humanitarian expedition allowing them to teach English and experience life in a third-world country. 2) Reduce poverty and improve education in India. Participants teach English in rural government elementary schools, and give service and hope to the villages they visit. We also fully fund a House of Learning for girls in Chamba, Himachal Pradesh, India and partially fund a Day Boarding School for girls in Baruipur, West Bengal, India. These girls are first generation learners who would not have educational opportunities without our support.

High School Expeditions

Youth Making a Difference (YMAD), a Utah non-profit organization, is preparing for another service expedition to India. YMAD is assembling a team of high school aged students, from the greater Salt Lake Area to create an expedition to India. We are looking for teens who are self-generative, outgoing and capable of making a difference. They will be trained in leadership skills, fundraising, and community service. Students will then travel to India to distribute the collected items and perform service related tasks and interact with the various orphanages and government schools in India. As part of the YMAD experience, the participants will be traveling a great distance by various means of transportation. They may also have the opportunity to visit a few of India’s historical and cultural sites before returning home.
