Head Start

Education & Mentoring

Description

Both of the Head Start programs provide a comprehensive child development program for income eligible preschoolers as well as related support services to families. Services for families include education, nutrition, health, mental and dental health, social service, and parent involvement.

Need

Volunteers are needed to work with children or adults on an individual basis promoting self-esteem and education activities. Volunteers may choose to share a talent with a group of adults or children (art, dance, music, science, etc.) on a one-time or regular basis. In addition, volunteers may work with families in the areas of health, literacy, mental health, etc. Foreign students are invited to share their cultures. Individualized help with disabled children is also needed.
