I was  blessed as a young lady to participate in STEP with Links when I attended Linkhorne Middle School. I vividly remember taking field trips to state colleges,  receiving tutoring on homework, learning how the stock market worked by using a game we would participate in week to week for our mock companies, and so much more. I personally can attest to the great work these women do in the community by exposing youth to cultural and educational opportunities that they may have never  been exposed to without the dedication of the Links.

Have a wonderful Day!
