Catholic Charities: Head Start

Head Start logo

Catholic Charities Head Start Centers provide education, social services, and health screenings to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers (6 weeks to 5 years old) from low-income families.

WHAT YOU DO

Loyola service learning students can play with and read to Head Start children and assist classroom teachers. Students volunteering at Head Start Centers must dress appropriately. All Head Start locations are active work environments filled with preschool-aged children.  Volunteers should wear sensible shoes. Flip-flops are not allowed. In addition, short shorts, mini-skirts, and any other suggestive, revealing, or offensive clothing will not be permitted.

 

WHAT YOU LEARN

Students will learn about early childhood development, classroom and behavior management, and different approaches to early learning. They will also learn to interact with diverse groups of people.
