About---

What is Link Crew?

Link Crew is a 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 classes to be positive role models, motivators, leaders and teachers to help guide freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school.

 

Who can apply for the Link Crew?

Next year’s sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to apply for Link Crew.  Juniors and seniors will be Link Leaders and will work to mentor next year’s freshmen class.  Sophomores form what is called the “A-team.”  The A-team’s role is to be the support structure behind the scenes to make everything happen.  If you are a sophomore who wants to be a Link Leader when you become a junior, we encourage you to apply.

 

Do I need to be an honor student to be on Link Crew?

No.  We need people who are reliable and will do what they say they are going to do.  Link Crew needs a diverse group of students who have one goal in mind – ensuring the success of our freshmen class.  We are looking for musical people, theatrical people, athletes, mathletes, and anyone else who has the desire to learn how to become a good leader. 

 

What all does the Link Crew do?

Link Leaders perform many activities, including:

·        attend two half-day training sessions during the summer

·        call and personally invite freshmen to orientation

·        lead ice-breaker activities during freshman orientation

·        facilitate fun, educational activities during homeroom periods

·        write short, encouraging messages on freshman lockers

·        Attend meetings/ check-in with your Link Crew coordinator once a month during the first trimester of the school year.

·        escort freshmen to their first home football game

·        participate in a group study session the Tuesday of the first final exam week

·        provide input on other social and motivational events to hold throughout the year

 

What are the requirements for being in Link Crew?

To be considered for Link Crew, you must complete an application.  Link Crew coordinators will review applications, discipline records, and if necessary conduct interviews before choosing Link Crew members. If you are selected there will be a $10 fee for your t-shirt, which you receive during training.
