Link 2 Unity

We Are Together Tamanend!

Throughout the year, and especially in Tiger's Eye, we support our students as they learn to find their voice and "stand up" for themselves and others. Once our students leave Tamanend and go on to CB South High School, building student advocacy is continued and broadened through a program called "First LINK." As a part of LINK's service outreach, those South students work with our Tamanend students to foster community building and servant leadership. We call this "Link to Unity" or L2U for short.

We will have our next L2U on Saturday, January 20th for all interested 7th, 8th and 9th graders who have not been linked before. To receive an invitation to L2U, students (or parents, guardians, teachers) need to fill out a quick nomination form. We will send invitations based on nominations in early January. That means we need nominations by December 22nd. Students who return the signed permission form first will be the ones who are admitted to L2U.

L2U starts at 8:30 and ends at 11 a.m. Being that it is an action and learning packed two-and-a half hours, students must commit to attending the entire session (no leaving early). Participation is free and student participants get a L2U t-shirt at the end.

Thirty students participated in L2U on a very cold November 11th. Additionally, eight of our own Tamanend Link Leaders supported the South Link Leaders as they ran station activities designed to teach leadership skills. Here are photos from our morning together.
