State Policy Webinar Series #2 – State Partnerships with Head Start/Early Head Start to Build Resilient Systems for Children and Families
September 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Governors and state policymakers increasingly recognize the need to build early childhood systems that can weather economic and health crises, such as COVID-19. When state leaders embrace Head Start and Early Head Start as a key community support, children and families benefit from the exemplary comprehensive child and family services Head Start provides in times of need.
On this one-hour webinar, learn from early childhood and Head Start leaders from Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas about how their states have partnered with HS and EHS programs through state funding, cross-agency leadership and on-going efforts to build community strength and collaboration, as well as the impact that has had on children and families. You will leave with a clear sense of how to advance partnerships in your state!
This webinar series is brought to you in partnership with the National Community Action Partnership and ZERO TO THREE and is the second in a three-part state policy webinar series.
