2018 Site Directors Academy

August 7 - August 9


Creating your own leadership style, bringing out the best in others and building a cohesive team: These are some of the skills you will learn at the Site Directors Academy. The program is designed to help leaders develop strategies to lead effectively and maintain high performing teams in the midst of turbulent external and internal organizational change.

This academy targets individuals responsible for the oversight of one or more child development centers to help them align the operations of each site with the goals of the organization. Region 9 Head Start Association, in partnership with InnoVisions, a social enterprise of Neighborhood House Association, has created this three-day intensive training to provide the following:

  • Skills training in leadership, supervision, community building, systems integration, and program operations.
  • Collaborative, adult learning experience with professional trainers, seasoned small group facilitators, and peer-to peer-networking.
  • Extended learning webinars to reinforce content and action plans.
  • Capstone activity addressing site-specific challenges.


The Site Directors Academy (SDA) is designed to build capacity for new and emerging leaders in your agency.  SDA will be facilitated by two seasoned trainers!  

Dr. Sheryl White and Alfonso Rodriguez from Neighborhood House Association.
