Services to Youth

The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated assisted with The SMART Girls session which discussed the power of reflective journaling and the girls began their individual journaling. The Power of Words has been the theme for the last 2 sessions.

Our very own, Lashone “Keisha” Grimes, led the participants of The SMART Girls program in a session on self-esteem. The interactive session had 20 young ladies developing a poster of positive self descriptions and discussing the importance of self love and daily self-affirmations.  Keisha is the author of “More than a Pretty Face” Empowering Women to Love and Value Their Inner Beauty”.  In the usual style of our Link sisters, healthy snacks were served.

January 16, 2019 was the culminating event for our V.I.S.A. project. Participants registered and voted on issues of importance to them, e.g. "Should There be a Hate Crime Law" in the state of South Carolina? Voting history was reviewed by Wendell Roberson, Sr., Deputy Director of the Board of Voter Registration and Elections of Beaufort County and our partner in our V.I.S.A. program. Participants registered, voted and celebrated with not only and "I Voted" sticker but with an "I Voted" cake.

Beginning in February or March, The Bluffton Boys & Girls Club will start the V.I.S.A. Club; monthly meetings throughout the year that will introduce issues of social importance to the youth, issues that can be addressed via voting!
