National Head Start Association

Head Start Alumni and Families





In 1965, our nation made a commitment to open a window of opportunity for at risk children - Head Start. In the 49 years since, nearly 31 million Americans have attended Head Start.

Head Start alumni have gone on to become business owners and artists, musicians and doctors, teachers, Members of Congress, and exceptional parents to their own children. Those who have been touched by this program know the reality of how a Head Start in life leads to success.

If you are an alum or your child attended Head Start, join us in a national campaign to encourage all former Head Start children and parents to identify themselves.

We will keep you informed about what we are doing to keep the Head Start window of opportunity open and you will hear about many ways to get involved.
