Link Crew

Link Crew is a transition program for incoming freshman that will help guide them toward both academic and social success.  This program focuses on three main components: safety, connection and information.  We want incoming freshman to feel safe at our school, both physically and emotionally, to have a connection from the get-go, and to have the necessary information to be successful in high school.  Link Crew will be more than just a one-time event of orientation, it is a year long program where upperclassman connect with freshman.  Link Crew will be considered a club and we are looking for Link Leaders who are current 10th and 11th graders.

Link Leaders are chosen by application and need to display a few attributes.  We are looking for a diverse cross section of the student body at Durango High school so that our incoming freshman will see there are students here just like them.  The following attributes are among what we are looking for:

  • Strong communication skills
  • Responsible
  • A positive role model
  • Willing to take risks
  • Dedicated
  • Self-directed
  • Respectful of diverse ideas and personalities
  • Good attendance
  • Kind and caring
  • Empathetic and compassionate
  • Willing to lead others
  • Accountable and reliable
  • Interested in helping others
  • Self-confident
  • Enthusiastic
  • Loves to have fun!
