Head Start Works! Advocacy 101 Toolkit 

NHSA’s Advocacy 101 Toolkit will provide you with the basic tools and skills necessary to advocate on behalf of Head Start in the media, with elected officials and in your own community.  

The toolkit also provides you with information on how to encourage your own community and family members to directly support NHSA’s advocacy efforts on behalf of the 32 million Head Start graduates and the one million children currently enrolled in Head Start, through our Dollar per Child fundraising campaign.  NHSA is the only national organization advocating exclusively for Head Start and working to ensure that it will continue for another half century.  

These documents can be printed off and shared.  We hope you will utilize them as an organizing tool!
