Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
LinkCommunitySchool seeks to provide an outstanding independent middle school education for Newark adolescents of all academic abilities from economically disadvantaged families. Link endeavors to create a powerful learning community built on a collective commitment to excellence and enduring core values. By building a strong academic foundation and instilling life long values, Link aims to develop students who will be successful in higher education and responsible and resourceful citizens who give back to others.
Begun as Project Link, this community school was founded in 1969 in response to the Newark riots and the resulting devastation of the Central Ward community. Link was established to help rebuild the community by providing an exceptional educational opportunity for young people who were left in poverty. It was founded on the belief that small class settings combined with opportunities for creative expression would transform potential ?dropouts? into community leaders. Critical to achieving that goal was providing each child the freedom to develop intellectually and emotionally in a safe, structured learning community. Based on these convictions, Link has grown into a thriving alternative middle school with the capacity to serve 128 seventh and eighth grade students.
