The New Castle County Order of the Links is the alumni association for New Castle County 4-H in Delaware.  To be nominated as a Link is the highest honor that can befall a 4-H member or leader.

Members of the Links remain active throughout the 4-H year, serving as judges, committee members and event organizers. They serve in many philanthropic capacities on behalf of 4-H club members, clubs and events, including offering numerous scholarships for camps, 4-H overnighters and training’s. Many Link members are still active 4-H volunteer leaders in local clubs.

Each summer, members of the Links meet to nominate new inductees. To qualify as a Link member, you must be beyond the age of 4-H membership (19 years of age) and a graduate of a local club. Adult 4-H volunteer leaders may be nominated after 5 years of volunteer service, regardless whether or not they were in 4-H as a youth.
