The Head Start Policy Council is a group of parents and community representatives that come together to give input on the program design and vote on program recommendations, including budget and personnel decisions. Policy Council Representatives are a very important component to Head Start and we are looking for past parents to volunteer for this role. As the parent of a child who has gone through Head Start, you know that it is a program that works to meet the growth and development needs of the preschool aged child. You have knowledge of the services that Head Start provides and you have ideas about how to keep the program running smoothly. Your voice is important and we want to hear it! This a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills and work with a group individuals who are passionate about helping low-income children and families succeed. The time commitment is not more than three to four hours per month.
