Batavia High School’s Transition & Leadership Program
About Link Crew
We are looking for current Sophomore and Junior students interested in creating a safe and supportive learning environment that will establish a positive foundation and transition for incoming freshmen. This comprehensive high school orientation and transition program will train you to lead, motivate, develop, and gain new skills to prepare you for life after high school. This leadership opportunity will be one of the best experiences at BHS. Come help us Make a Difference!
** This is a non-academic leadership program that requires no previous leadership experience.
**The commitment outside of school is on a volunteer only basis.
Application and Process
Sophomore and Junior students who are interested in being apart of Link Crew must complete an application located here or in the Counseling and Advising Office. Applications are due to the Counseling and Advising Office before Spring Break.
The Link Crew Coordinators will select 100 sophomore and junior students to be trained to mentor and support the incoming class. Selected students will be notified after Spring Break.
Leaders and Crews
Each Crew will consist of 2-3 leaders and 20 freshmen. During freshman orientation, freshmen students and their assigned Link Leaders will participate in a series of fun, innovative and positive activities. This process allows for a connection and relationship between Link Leaders and freshmen students. The activities will focus on BHS traditions and choices that students may experience during high school.
