Town Lake (TX) Chapter Programs

The Links, Incorporated, is committed to organizing and supporting educational, cultural, and civic activities that enhance our community. Our national programs have provided enriching experiences for youth who are educationally disadvantaged and talented, as well as those who are gifted. Our focal points for 2018-2019 are in three main areas of interests listed below.

RISE (Readiness in Science and Engineering)

RISE (Readiness in Science and Engineering), a STEM program at Bertha Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy, a Title I middle school in East Austin, that inspires girls to achievement with a robotics competition team and National Society of Black Engineers, Jr. chapter.

The chapter supports the Robotics Team at Bertha Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy (6401 N Hampton Dr, Austin, TX 78723) each Wednesday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. as a part of the Services to Youth Facet’s RISE Program (Readiness in Science & Engineering).

SOAR (Spurring Optimism and Affirming Resilience)

 

SOAR (Spurring Optimism and Affirming Resilience), a health program, which raises community dialogue about childhood trauma and reduces the suffering of children in our community at critical points of distress and hardship, such as food insecurity during school breaks, court-appointed supervised parent visitations, entry into foster care and refugee arrivals in Austin.

The Town Lake (TX) Chapter provides mentoring to a middle school girl at Bertha Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy (6401 N Hampton Dr, Austin, TX 78723) each Thursday from 11 to 1:30 p.m. as a part of the chapter’s SOAR Program (Spurring Optimism Affirming Resilience).
