We know Head Start alumni are an untapped power source but alumni engagement often must take a back seat in the face of limited resources and time. Join this session to learn practical tips to engage your program alum with minimum resources and maximum impact in the areas of program reputation, parent engagement, and community partnerships.
Malkia Payton Jackson serves as the Director of Alumni Engagement at the National Head Start Association. She brings almost 25 years of diverse experience in employee communications and leadership development supporting strategy and engagement initiatives.
Her previous work included leading roles in award-winning communications that equipped global organizations for large-scale changes. Malkia most enjoys creating authentic experiences rooted in organizational mission and purpose and reflective of organizational culture.

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.
