Head Start Community Partnerships 

Alta Head Start continues to expand and refine our programs. We have been working with several community providers and have jointly engaged in cooperative projects. Our site on Lockwood Boulevard is operated by Alta Head Start and the Mahoning County Educational Services Center. The newest classroom will be on the campus of Youngstown State University. This classroom will allow students from a number of University Programs (Early Childhood, Health, Nursing, etc.) to observe and participate in a real practicum experience with the children. These partnerships enhance all of the agencies involved and expand the positive footprint that Head Start can have on a community.
