Programs, Activities & Projects

Programs are broken down into five facets:

  • Services to Youth
  • The Arts
  • National Trends & Services
  • International Trends & Services
  • Health & Human Services

Columbus Chapter of the Links in Columbus OH has partnered with the Columbus City Preparatory School for Girls (CCPSG) to develop a program of awareness and learning experiences for the girls to enable them to see a broad range of career and lifestyle opportunities that are beyond their current purview and that exist once they pursue a track of college preparedness.

Each week a different Facet comes to the school to work with a 6th grade class on the area of focus of that Facet. The following week a another Facet comes to that same class until all five Facets interacts with that class. After the five week rotation, the rotation of Facets starts again with a new class of 6th graders.

The following heartwarming testimonials from the students provide some insight into the importance of this programming:
