Head Start’s 50th Anniversary
May 18, 2015
Project Head Start was launched on May 18, 1965, with the goal of providing vulnerable preschool children and their families with comprehensive services to help them be ready for school. Programs were developed “by local communities to meet local needs” and shaped by the leadership of parents and volunteers. After 50 years, these core values remain unchanged.
