Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes sophomores and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. 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 are mentors and student leaders who guide the sophomores to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate high school success.
More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success increases dramatically. Link Crew provides the structure for incoming sophomores to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.
Link Crew is the high school transition program that hopes to increase attendance, decrease discipline referrals, and improve students academic performance. Link Crew's goal is to provide schools with a structure in which students make real connections with each other thus increasing school safety and reducing incidence of bullying with anti-bullying education. LINK leaders do this by providing a high school orientation program, academic follow-ups, social follow-ups, and leader initiated contacts.
