Welcome to the website of Camellia Rose (GA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated.
I encourage you to browse our pages to learn more about our chapter and the core values our organization holds dear: friendship, integrity, honesty, service, commitment, and family relationships. Since our chartering in November 2009, the dedicated members of the Camellia Rose Chapter have worked tirelessly to empower women and youth, promote healthy lifestyles amongst children, encourage art appreciation, and introduce different cultures through volunteer service.
The Camellia Rose Chapter of The Links, Incorporated began its journey into Linkdom on September 5, 2008, when thirty-six women were invited to attend an informational meeting at the Marriott Marquis in Downtown Atlanta. This group of women was called together for a specific purpose–to bond in friendship and link their bonds to service. Following the initial gathering, the ladies met at the home of Dr. & Mrs. Phillip Wiltz in October, 2008 to begin their journey from an interest group, to a charted chapter.
The Health and Human Services facet was developed in response to the chronic health disparities that persist in our communities and to promote better health outcomes for African-Americans.
This facet addresses the academic, cultural, health, social awareness, career development, and mentoring needs of youth to succeed in the 21st century.
The Youth Empowerment program was developed to give students at Jean Childs Young Middle School the tools to become role models and change agents in their community.
The goal of The Arts facet is to increase and expand exposure to the arts, and support the distinct legacy and rich history of African American art and culture.
The vision of the National Trends and Services facet is to eliminate disparities by reducing barriers to services through advocacy, education, and service.
The mission of the Intern’l Trends and Services facet is to expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to service the educational, health and cultural needs of people of African descent globally.
