The History

Project Head Start began in earnest in 1965, an eight-week summer program for preschoolers. These 40-plus years later, Head Start has grown into the premier provider of early childhood education and social services for children in poverty. In that time, millions of children who lived in poverty have gone on to achieve greater and greater success, opening doors for future generations to experience the same triumph over adversity.
