A major component of the campaign is the connection made with feeder middle schools and colleges.

Leadership students are involved in matriculation events at each HS campus, in which incoming eighth graders are brought to their feeder high school to learn about the educational programs offered, get a taste of the campus life, and develop initial contacts with administration, faculty and student body before actually walking on campus as a ninth grader in August or September.

College tours are provided for HS each TAC school and college mentors are recruited to participate in arts events, service learning projects, and leadership retreats.
