Link Crew and WEB
HeadsUp is proud to support transition and support programs at our middle and high schools.
WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) at DMS and RJ (Restorative Justice) at VV
WEB builds confidence and shows kids that their community cares about their success. WEB is an orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders to Davidson. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from 7th and 8th grades to be WEB Leaders. They work to make the newest students feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. At Venetia Valley, HeadsUp underwrites a RJ, a program that builds a healthy school community and support students and teachers by addressing discipline issues in a novel way.
Link Crew Team at San Rafael High School and Terra Linda High School
Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, Link Crew trains members of the junior and senior classes to be Link Leaders. As positive role models, Link Leaders are motivators, leaders and teachers who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshman success.
More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success increases dramatically. The Link Crew high school transition program provides the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.
Link Crew’s goal is to provide schools with a structure in which students make real connections with each other. Through this program, students learn that people at school care about them and their success. Link Crew is the high school transition program that will increase attendance, decrease discipline referrals and improve academic performance at your school.
