About The Links, Incorporated
The Links, Incorporated is an international, nonprofit corporation, established in 1946. It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of over 15,000 professional women of color who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. The Organization focuses on local communities, yet is international in its scope, growth and leadership. The Members are business and civic leaders, role models, activists and volunteers who work toward a common vision. There are 288 Chapters in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and the United Kingdom.
The Wichita (KS) Chapter was organized in December, 1968. Our 50-year history exemplifies the pillars of our organization and the commitment we have to improving the lives of others. We have provided over $2,000,000 in scholarships through the AAMEI Beautillion program, this is only one example of how our Chapter continues to impact the lives of those we serve.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Our Mission is to enrich the lives of members and the community; and to work together towards achieving common goals. We are one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of extraordinary women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.
We will continue to deliver quality local programs that support the national goals of The Links, Incorporated. We are committed to the Wichita community and more. We will accomplish this through programming and resources to achieve those goals.
