SERVICES TO YOUTH
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.
The Services to Youth facet uses an integrated approach to prepare young people to succeed as healthy citizens in the global workforce and to promote healthy lifestyles within families and communities.
The Pine Bluff Chapter chooses to implement a response to the challenge of the achievement gap related to African American children compared to other groups. The major goal of the program is to employ cognitive and affective strategies that will produce positive results in a prescribed timeframe. The anticipated outcome is the advancement of one grade level each year for each participant.
