Link Crew is a high school orientation and transition program that increases freshmen success. Members of the Junior and Senior class are trained to be Link Leaders who act as a positive role model, motivators, student mentors, and teachers helping guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful in high school. North Salinas High School implemented the Link Crew program in 2012. Over the past 5 years we have increased the number of Link Leaders and overall impact of the program. We have social follow-up events to connect with freshmen and celebrate their achievements. Link Leaders also go into freshmen English classes to teach lessons about overcoming challenges and staying on track for graduation.
