Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes grade 9 students and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, North Park's proven high school transition program trains mentors from grades 10 and 11 to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the grade 9 to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate grade 9 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 grade 9 to receive support and guidance from students in older grade who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.
