Head Start Enrollment 16,574
For the Grand Canyon state with a population of 7.17 million, Arizona’s Head Start bridges a huge gap in needs among at-risk families. Despite being a mostly rural state where one-quarter of the land mass is made up of Indian reservations, two-thirds of the Head Start programs in Arizona are in the larger cities.
Head Start’s comprehensive approach of serving the whole child and the whole family provides a total service of more than 11,000 families in adult education, workforce training, parenting and dual-language classes.
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
