International Trends & Services
The Links Incorporated has historically focused on addressing educational, financial, social and cultural barriers facing African descendants within and outside of the U.S. We have award winning model programs that address equity and access issues at home and abroad through the transformational work of our chapter.
SFLinksConnect: Mentoring Across The Miles, Liberia continues our core national and international educational outreach mission. Our Liberia program affirms the historical connection between African Americans and Liberia, which is embodied in our relationship with Ellen Sirleaf, President of Liberia and an honorary member of The Links Incorporated.
MENTORING ACROSS THE MILES
Mentoring Across the Miles is a multilevel mentoring program that is focused on decreasing high school and college attrition. In addition to financial support, we convene monthly videoconferences with young women in Liberia to help strengthen their academic preparation and life skills to enable them to complete high school and matriculate into a 2 or 4 year college program. Through the participation of young women in local Bay Area colleges, we also expose the students to age adjacent mentors to help them learn about American culture and strategies for life success.
