Head Start Enrollment 3,383
The total population of Nevada is 3.08 million—and more than two-thirds live in the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The tourism industry remains Nevada’s largest employer—and this has a significant influence on the well-being of families who are employed in service-related industries. Another vastly rural state where the Head Start programs are concentrated nearer the larger cities, Nevada has an estimated 46,000 at-risk children under age five. Of those, only 14% of three- and four-year old’s had access to Head Start. And only 2% of children under three had access to Early Head Start. Just seven Head Start grantees or sub-grantees provide services to children and support a total enrollment of more 3,100 adults 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.
