The Links, Incorporated has forged a national alliance with Achieving the Dream, Incorporated to launch the “Equation for Excellence Program” with community colleges and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The Education Linkage will also lead The Links, Incorporated’s efforts to create a sustainable relationship with other national organizations aligned with the Achieving the Dream (ATD) partnership.
