2023 Richman Lecture 

How Does Head Start Recruit and Retain Families Experiencing Adversities?

April 26, 2023

5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 

Inperson or Virtual

This lecture will focus on outreach and engagement needs in early care and education settings and specifically within Head Start. It will highlight learnings from a recent literature synthesis conducted on the factors that shape recruitment, selection, enrollment, and retention for Head Start eligible families and for families experiencing adversities, and also the practices that might be most promising in those same areas. Adversities of focus will include families experiencing poverty, those experiencing homelessness, those in the foster care or child welfare system, and those affected by substance use. The lecture will emphasize the practice, policy, and research implications of the findings.
