Event Description

You're invited to the 2024 Region V Head Start Association Conerence!  This conference is hosted by the Region V Head Start Association in partnership with Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin HSAs. Join us at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Chicago from November 5th (Pre-Conference) to November 8th, 2024. Let's come together to reconnect, learn, and inspire as we stand united as Guardians of the Future!

The theme "Powered by Head Start: Guardians of the Future" highlights those who work in Head Start/Early Head Start by spotlighting their pivotal role in shaping the future. It acknowledges the dedication and impact of colleagues across all areas associated with HS/EHS, positioning impactful, everyday individuals as guardians or caretakers of the next generation.

This celebration is rooted in the understanding that those involved in HS/EHS play a crucial part in empowering children during their formative years. It recognizes the hard work and commitment of individuals within the HS/EHS who contribute to the holistic development of children and empowering families, addressing not only educational needs but also health, nutrition, and parental engagement.  It emphasizes that the collective efforts of HS/EHS practitioners are instrumental in creating a positive and promising future for the children and families they serve, turning the theme into a tribute to their dedication and impact on generations to come.
