Hubbard High School launches new mentoring program

High school can be a challenging time for many teenagers. Not only are students balancing their academics, they often are juggling jobs, activities and their social lives.

To help incoming freshmen make a smooth transition from Hubbard Middle School to Hubbard High School, the Hubbard Exempted Village School District has launched a new mentoring program. Link Crew is a nationally recognized transition program that aims to warmly welcome freshmen so that they feel comfortable throughout their first year of high school. Built upon the idea that students can help other students succeed, Link Crew relies on mentors from the junior and senior classes to serve as positive role models to students in the freshmen class.

In May, Hubbard High School trained more than 40 students, who will serve as Link Leaders during the 2019-2020 school year. Those student leaders will be paired with incoming freshmen at orientation in August. Through the yearlong mentoring program, Link Leaders will provide academic and social support to members of the freshmen class through structured classroom visits and more relaxed, social activities.

The Link Crew program has been shown to help increase school safety and reduce incidences of bullying. It’s also proven to increase attendance, decrease discipline referrals and improve academics.
