The Links, Incorporated founded in 1946, is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. The outstanding programming of The Links, Incorporated has five facets which include National Trends and Services, The Arts, Services to Youth, International Trends and Services and Health and Human Services.

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!
