Head Start/Early Head Start



Head Start/ Early Head Start serves children 0-5 years old. We offer Early Head Start services for Pregnant Women, Infants and Toddlers 0-3 years and Head Start Pre-School Education and Family Services for families with children 3-5 years old. Our programÕs goal is to engage families and deliver optimal services in education, health services, and socialization to vulnerable children in our community to prepare them to enter school. We want to empower our students with the tools to not only succeed themselves but to contribute to society as well. Our Go Global initiative will be launched in the 2016-2017 school year which includes food, clothing, blanket and toy drives to help students give back to society. Our children are in need of mentors/ volunteers for the following: 1. Lunch buddies-during lunch time 11:00-11:30am and/ or 11:30-12:00pm 2. Breakfast buddies-during breakfast 8:00-8:30am 3.

ChildrenÕs play group volunteers-during parent groups, volunteers are needed to do activities with children-i.e. arts/crafts, dance activities, sports activities like basketball, dodgeball etc. Ð Twice a month/Tuesdays 5:30-6:30pm. Volunteers have the freedom to do any fun activities with the children with prior approval. 7. Volunteers to help with our go global initiative-canned food drive, clothing drive, blanket/ toys drive etc. to give back to our community. All volunteers/ mentors must fill out a volunteer application packet and get background check clearance prior to working directly with our children. We appreciate any mentors/ volunteers that would commit to any of the above needs-whether the commitment is 30 minutes or 2 hours per week we value any services extended to us.
