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, students from the junior and senior classes are trained to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders are mentors, motivators, leaders and teachers who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshman success. Link Crew provides the structure for freshman 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 begins with an interactive and powerful orientation that makes freshmen excited and proud to be attending SJHHS and allows them to begin developing relationships and strategies that will contribute to their success at SJHHS.

After orientation, Link Crew continues, providing a variety of both Academic and Social Follow Up Activities throughout the year. Academic Follow Ups are lessons presented by trained Link Crew Leaders during visits to Freshman classes; Social Follow Ups are events in which the freshmen and Leaders attend fun social events together.
