LINK Leaders Summer

LINK Leaders Summer is a 6-week, full-day program from July 1 to August 9 for seventh through tenth graders. The program runs 5 days per week (Monday-Friday) from 9:00am-4:00pm. Breakfast will be served from 9:00-9:30am. LINK Leaders will guide students in grades 7th-10th to high school graduation and into college, technical training, and/or the workforce.

Each program day includes Business & Entrepreneurship Camp and enrichment blocks. Students choose from enrichment opportunities in STEM, art, writing/humanities, financial literacy, and service learning. Fridays are field trips that create anticipation and align with the career readiness curriculum; trips may include touring businesses, participating in selling events, meeting local entrepreneurs, and touring local colleges. Volunteers from local businesses will also share their expertise during the camp. Each day includes movement breaks, breakfast, snack, and lunch to help relax and energize students and encourage healthy habits in school and the workplace. Students also participate in Daily Rap and Reflection meetings to support positive, student-directed progress within individuals and the program as a whole.

Summer enrichment partners include:
