Link Crew

 


 

What is Link Crew

Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, Link Crew trains members of the junior and senior class to be Link Leaders. As positive role models, Link Leaders are motivators, leaders and teachers who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school.

 

Link Crew increases freshmen success. Studies are showing that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chances for success are exponential. The Link Crew high school transition program provides the structure for freshmen 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's goal is to provide with a structure in which students make real connections with each other. Through this program, students learn that people at school care about them and their success. Link Crew is a high school transition program that increases attendance, decreases discipline referrals and improve s academic performance.

 

Freshman Orientation

A year with Link Crew begins with a spirited and interactive freshman orientation at the start of the school year. A general assembly, facilitated by the Link Crew Coordinator, takes students through a series of fun, whole group activities that will have participants laughing and simply enjoying their first minutes of high school. Unlike many orientations which are performances for the freshmen, the Link Crew orientation is an engaging experience for both the freshmen and the Link Crew Leaders to start to get to know each other and build positive relationships.The goal of Orientation Day is to welcome the freshmen to their new campus, introduce them to their Link Crew Leaders to set the transition program in motion, and to encourage them to think about the path they will take during the next four years.

 

A Year Long Program

More than a one day event, Link Crew is a yearlong high school transition program. The strength in Link Crew lies in the fact that it is not just an orientation day, rather a program that is active throughout the year with: 

  • Social Activities and Follow-Ups
  • Academic Tutoring and Follow-Ups
  • Link Leader Initiated Contact
  • Mentoring and Leadership
  • Commitment to Graduate
