• Linkages School-Based Youth Services Program

    Located on-site at the high school, Linkages is a Youth Services Program comprised of two different community agencies and is funded by the State Department of Children and Families. 

    Linkages offers counseling, referrals, education, and prevention in the areas of health, mental health and substance abuse.

    Linkages also offers life skills and job readiness education, job placement assistance, recreation, and community outreach (especially for pregnant and parenting teens).
