About Us

What is Link Crew? Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable as they start their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, Link Crew is a proven high school transition program that trains juniors and seniors to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshmen success.

Who are Link Leaders? Link Leaders are upperclassmen (Juniors & Seniors) who are good role models for younger students and who have been successful at MHHS. Link Leaders' communication skills, leadership potential, responsibility, and personality have helped them succeed in the high school environment. The lessons they have learned should be shared to help others succeed. You could have a tremendous influence on new students and gain many valuable leadership skills in the process.

What does a Link Leader do? Link Leaders are trained to work with the incoming freshman class and other new students who are entering our school next fall. After the extensive training, the Link Leaders will run freshmen orientation before school starts in August. At the orientation, Link Leaders will meet their groups of freshman and play games and activities to feel more comfortable and learn about life in high school. Throughout the year, leaders will mentor their freshman through social and academic follow ups. Leaders will choose an Affinity Group to be a part of and organize follow up events to help continue building relationships. Leaders will continue to meet with their freshman groups throughout the year, touching base, discussing problems, and making friendships that last a lifetime. We've discovered that the more contact a freshmen has with his/her Link Leader- the more successful the freshmen will be.
