JFK Link Crew Application 2017-2018

The mission of the JFK Link Crew is to assist 9th graders with the transition to high school by linking them with an upperclassman who serves as a guide and role model at Orientation Day and through the entire first year of high school.

Why should you apply to be a Link Leader?
• Positively influence the life of a group of 9th graders
• Learn valuable leadership skills
• Add an extracurricular activity to your college and scholarship applications!
• Have fun!

What do Link Leaders do?
• Attend 1 after-school training in May
• Attend 2 days of training in August to prepare for Orientation Day
• Attend Ninth Grade Academy for 4 days in August (probably August 7-10)
Run Freshmen Orientation on the first day of school in August
• Lead a group of freshmen, your Link Crew, in activities on Orientation Day
• Teach your Crew everything they need to start the year off right
• Mentor your Crew throughout the year to help them have a successful school year, in and out of class
If you have space in your schedule, you would have a class, Peer Helping, during the same time as the 9th grade Anchor Down class, to help support them.

    Please complete this application by the end of April. You can edit your application as many times as you would like after you submit, so you don't have to get it done in one sitting. Please see Mrs. Rivera or Mr. Naughton in the Counseling Office with any questions. Thanks!
