Head Start is a federally funded program for low-income children ages 3 to 5 years. The goal of Head Start is to provide children with experiences that help them develop emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually through activities such as, creative arts, music, language experiences and play.
Parents and other family members benefit from a wide variety of activities that help them to become more involved in their child’s education. WOCAP offers courses on parenting, job skills, GED, child development and health just to name a few.
Head Start needs members of the community to share their time and expertise with children and their families. Volunteers can read stories to children, teach music, art, and physical activities to children, help supervise on field trips and most importantly Volunteers will be giving the time and attention that young children need to grow up healthy and happy. Volunteers can also offer workshops to parents on many subjects such as car repair, gardening, budgeting, crafts and more.
