Link Crew 2023-24

Introduction to Link Crew

Link Crew is a high school program that welcomes 9th graders to the high school and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year of their high school experience. An increasing number of studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success improves dramatically.

Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the Link program trains mentors from the junior and senior class to be Link Leaders. As positive role models, Link Leaders provide support and guidance to 9th graders and help them discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school.
