Since it’s inception, Head Start has been in the forefront of equipping families to fight their personal war on poverty and empowering staff to overcome insurmountable odds. Over the last two years leaders have carried the indescribable burden of operating a service organization through an international crisis. A burden that many can’t adequately describe yet all understand.

At the same time – leaders are the curators of vision, strategy, morale, and momentum. If we are to flourish as an essential component of American society, without hesitation, a focus on leadership is critical. This retreat intends to provide a space for directors and their leadership teams to come together to decompress from the past and prepare for the journey ahead.


The Region 9 Head Start Association (R9HSA) has secured Momentum Leadership Group to facilitate a two-day, four-module interactive executive level leadership experience where personal development, workforce engagement, organization improvement and strategic planning come together.

This retreat is focused on the specific needs of executive directors, leadership teams and emerging leaders including:

  • Recentering the Leader through wellness, reflection and personal action planning
  • Reviving the Team by focusing on leadership strategy, effective communication strategies and team dialogue
  • Refreshing the Culture by managing toxic behavior, maintaining engagement and elevating relationships
  • Revisiting the Systems of staffing, organizational structure and strategic planning

Bring a Team
The R9HSA’s Leadership Retreat emphasizes individual and team development. Organizational culture is best impacted when there are multiple change agents equipped with the same information and moving together towards a shared vision. Bring a team and enjoy the dynamic of this unique setting!
