Mission Synergy - Head Start
Defining the Mission
Promoting school readiness through educational, health, nutritional, and social services, Head Start and Early Head Start programs facilitate the social and cognitive development of economically disadvantaged children.
But with a massive infrastructure of administrators, specialists, and grantees, Head Start relies heavily on the training, technical assistance, and grants management services of partners like STGi—instrumental in both the shaping and sustainment of the modern Head Start incarnation.
Sourcing the Mission
Since 2003, STGi has placed a cadre of content and technical assistance specialists in state-based offices and regional Head Start locations across the country. In addition to conducting individual and cluster trainings, STGi experts routinely help grantees meet Federal regulations; implement monitoring and self-assessment processes; and foster collaboration between the Office of Head Start, state-based early childhood partners, and other training and technical assistance (T/TA) professionals.
Recently, STGi received eight state-based Head Start T/TA contracts, received three new regional Head Start T/TA contracts (Regions II, V, and VI), and maintained regional contracts for Regions IV and IX.
With entrenched standing and intimate knowledge of the Head Start mission, STGi is poised to continue its lasting impact on the Head Start and Early Head Start initiatives for years to come.
