School Readiness

 

Project LINK’s school readiness programs promote conditions and behaviors that enhance students’ readiness to learn by promoting parental involvement, community interaction, obtainment of school supplies, and to ensure health requirements are met to attend schools in Hillsborough County.



 

Back-2-School Health Clinics

                            

The purpose of the “Back 2 School Health Clinic” is to initiate school readiness, parental involvement, and community interaction, targeting economically challenged families who reside in Hillsborough County and have children that attend schools throughout Hillsborough County Public School System.

 

This event targets students entering kindergarten through high school levels. Students are provided with free school supplies such as backpacks, pens, paper, notebooks, and rulers in addition to health services such as immunization, eye examinations, and physicals—all requirements needed to attend schools in the Hillsborough County School District.

 

Project LINK is the administrative arm of the Back-to-School Coalition of Hillsborough County. The coalition members consist of local non-profit agencies that partner at selected sites.

 

Executives from each agency meets once a month beginning in January to build collaborative efforts in acquiring sponsorship's, scheduling nurses and doctors for each site.

 

During this event, families get an opportunity to meet with various school principals & teachers, community support agencies, sponsoring corporate representatives and partake in a host of activities that include food, entertainment, face painters, and balloon makers.
