HEAD START COUNCIL MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL CONFERENCE

""

Six of Region 19 Head Start Parent Policy Council members traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in training events sponsored by the Nation Head Start Association’s 30th annual Parent Conference and Family Engagement Institutes. The event provided training and educational opportunities, specifically designed for Policy Council chairs and members. The trainings focused on how parents, families and Head Start program staff can work together to promote parent and family engagement and children’s learning and development.

 

Over 1600 Head Start policy members and volunteers from around the country benefited from the 3 day event featuring 123 interactive and hands on sessions ranging from health, family management, education and child and self development.

 

Training opportunities such as these allow Head Start Parent Policy members to explore and implement the best practices for parent involvement to benefit the families of Head Start and increase their children’s success in school and in life, while supporting the Head Start model of shared governance and family engagement.
