The Southwest Consortium of Indian Head Start Programs enthusiastically invites you to present at the 35th Native American Child and Family Conference and share your innovative ideas with other Native Head Start Programs . The conference will be held at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, 800 Rio Grande Blvd, NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104 from March 7-11, 2016.
The Native American Child and Family Conference serves as a forum for Indian Head Start staff to share information, discuss relevant issues, concerns, new ideas and program changes and build networks for supporting the work they do in their local programs. The overall goal is to have “state-of-the-art” information provided in interactive learning environments.
The goal of the Native American Child and Family Conference is to provide Head Start, Early Head Start, and Child Care programs with training opportunities to build their capacity in providing quality services.
There are three Conference objectives:
- To provide quality workshops targeted toward building the knowledge base and beginning skills of front-line staff working directly with children and their families.
- To increase the knowledge base of program management staff in order to provide quality early childhood development services.
- To provide a learning environment for sharing among programs for the benefit of young children moving to become future leaders in their communities.
Please visit our website www.southwestconsortium.org to complete the online proposal form by November 6, 2015.
If you know anyone who might be interested in providing training please forward this email to them.
