2020: The Year Ahead for Head Start

Join Head Start leaders in Washington, D.C. at the start of 2020 to discuss what a new year means for Head Start.

We need you in Washington where your voices and your stories will make Head Start’s impact felt throughout the halls of Congress. Are you up to the task? Take action to make this Congress one that understands, values, and empowers the important role Head Start serves for children and families.


What’s special about the Leadership Institute?

The Winter Leadership Institute is essential not only because it offers informative sessions and invaluable networking events, but because it provides the opportunity to meet with members of Congress and build a strong, meaningful relationship.

Learn and Grow
Leadership Institutes offer deep-dive insights into the policies that affect Head Start nationally, and how these can be implemented locally. What’s the latest and what can we expect in the months ahead?

Advocate and Educate
NHSA’s Government Affairs team will make sure that you have all the resources necessary to schedule Hill meetings with your members of Congress during the Institute. These meetings are critical to maintaining a strong relationship with Congress and making sure that Head Start’s impact is understood. Together, we can make sure that this dialogue leads to results.

Network and Share
By convening leaders from across the country, our Leadership Institutes help drive the Head Start community forward. Meet with your colleagues from across the country, share in conversations about niche Head Start happenings, and make connections that last.
