Services to 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. We implement transformational programs that are responsive to the academic, health, cultural, social awareness, career development, and mentoring needs of
youth. In support of The Links’ mission to enrich and enhance the lives of black youth, the primary goals of this facet are to:
• Prepare our youth for the global workforce and to be healthy global citizens
• Provide a high level of support for youth in our communities through mentoring programs
• Expand and support science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics education
The Links, Incorporated has a mission through it’s Global Trilogy of International Trends and Services, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), and the Signature Program, “Education Across the Miles” to expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to service the educational, health and cultural needs of people of African descent throughout the world.
Health and Human Services
The Links, Incorporated established the Health and Human Services facet in response to the chronic health disparities that persist in our communities and result in the decreased life expectancy of African-Americans. This new facet brings greater focus, resources, and coordination to The Links, Incorporated’s health initiatives already in existence.
