NHSA’s Alumni Network

MHSA encourages Massachusetts Head Start alumni to join the National Head Start Alumni Network. This initiative was started by the National Head Start Association to celebrate Head Start’s semi-centennial as a public awareness campaign to promote the successes of the program’s 32 million alumni.

Who can join?

All former Head Start children and their parents are welcome to join! Just like Head Start itself, the Alumni network takes a two-generation approach. It’s a great opportunity to create or attend a local networking event, connect with other alumni, and contribute to Head Starts ongoing success.
