Welcome, Head Start Alumni!

We are Head Start.

About The Network...

Over the last six decades, 37 million children have been served by Head Start. Their stories and testimony are living proof points of Head Start’s impact. Head Start alumni hail from communities across the country. We serve and work in every sector worldwide—from boardrooms to classrooms, from cockpits to courtrooms. Innovators and communicators, advocates and thinkers, health care heroes and teachers—alumni are connected by a shared love for the first learning experience that told us we belonged.
