Since Head Start inception more than 50 years ago, family engagement has always been a pillar of the program. Underlying the Head Start focus on the whole child is the understanding that parents are the primary educators and advocates of their child. Moreover, when parents engage with their child, they not only improve the child’s happiness and success—but theirs as well.

The Family Engagement and Cultural Effectiveness conference is designed to celebrate the different cultures, traditions and practices that are reflected in the modern family. In so doing, participants learn how to use the strengths and attributes of culture to aid a child’s own successful walk through the world.

In this conference, nationally and internationally known practitioners, researchers and motivational speakers share their knowledge, to teach us and to learn from us, about parent engagement through the lens of cultural awareness.

 

The Vision

All children, regardless of their circumstance at birth, deserve a full and prosperous life.
