AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO PREPARING YOUTH FOR THE GLOBAL WORKFORCE AS ENGAGED CITIZENS
The Links, Incorporated created its first program facet, Services to Youth, to equip black youth to use their intellect and spirit of achievement to become successful and productive citizens. Today, The Links, Incorporated continues to implement aligned, integrated and transformational programs that are responsive to the academic, health, cultural, social awareness, career development, and mentoring needs of youth. Our eight-year collaboration with The Hampton/Newport News (Alumni) Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated has provided mentoring and educational, cultural and career exposure to a targeted group of youth in our community via the chapter’s Young Achievers program. Through this partnership, we have been fortunate to help enrich the lives of several hundred male students. Our chapter has provided over $5,000 in scholarships to deserving students who enter an accredited Historically Black College and Universities. We are proud of the work we do!
