About the Institute

Head Start is nothing if not innovative. From involving parents in program governance in 1965 to creating new two-generation services for parents in 2015, Head Start programs turn their challenges into opportunities through innovation.

As Head Start’s 50th anniversary comes to a close, we will turn our collective creativity toward planning for Head Start’s “next generation.” How will we make innovation a critical part of Head Start’s next 50 years? What challenges lay ahead and what innovative solutions are being developed to address them? This September, join 400 of your peers from across the country in laying the groundwork for the next 50 years of innovation!

Institute sessions will focus on pressing policy issues such as full-day requirements and outcomes. There will be opportunities to hear from senior staff from OHS, and to meet with your Members of Congress. The 2015 Leadership Institute will offer an unparalleled opportunity to get the most up-to-date information straight from the source in Washington, D.C.
