When it comes to learning, parents are often the first and most important teachers in their children’s lives. Your children will look to you to help them develop the skills necessary to be successful in life. In order to help them achieve their goals, our staff wants to help you take the first steps to achieve your goals.

Parent & Youth Outreach provides workshops and special events for parents at their child’s Early Head Start or Head Start sites. The activities are research-based and designed to help families transcend their current circumstances and build a better future not only for themselves but for their communities as a whole.
