The school and its community, in collaboration with public and private institutions and
organizations are indeed inseparable if they are to create on impact on the lives of the students
and members of the community they are committed to serve. The school can enjoy linkages and
networking activities with international, national, and local organizations in the community for
mutual benefits and assistance needed.
Networking and linkages are important for the following reasons:

 The program outreach and visibility can be greatly increased.

 Technology transfer, share and dissemination can be facilitated between networked
organization and among the respective partners
 Sharing of knowledge, skill, expertise and experiences helps in improving the effectiveness
and efficiency
 Co-financing links can be forged
 Replication of funding can be avoided and the grants can be used in a better managed and
meaningful fashion

The first step is for the school to prepare a list of projects and activities it plans to undertake
including the much-needed assistance in terms of human and material resources, then determine
the institutions and organizations with parallel objectives and service.
Linkages, also termed interconnections, with institutions functioning along the same
mission are interned to serve members of both sides according to their respective needs, interest,
and objectives. The create bonds together to solicit support and assistance for purposeful
activities which could be facilitated faster and better considering the doubling of energy and
