Link Crew

 

What is Link Crew?

Link Crew is a freshman transition program that welcomes incoming freshmen and makes them feel comfortable and supported throughout the first year of their high school experience. Link Crew trains juniors and seniors to support and be positive role models for incoming 9th graders. Incoming sophomores can also join our program.

 

Student Roles:

Link Leaders – We take approximately 100 juniors and seniors.  They are trained during the summer to become leaders to a small group of freshmen in which they will mentor throughout the school year. Leaders are responsible to check in with the freshmen, support them in academic and social situations, and continue helping them out in any way.

Link Commissioners “Group Captains”– Senior and junior leaders who work directly with the coordinators.  They help with the details and maintenance of the program throughout the school year.

Administrative Team “A-Team” –  These students are sophomores.  They are trained during the summer with the upperclassmen.  They serve as assistants to the Link Commissioners “Group Captains” and Coordinators.  They work to support the logistics of Freshmen Fest orientation as well as the activities and events throughout the school year.
