Head Start Program

Head Start volunteers assist to promote the school readiness of children ages 3 to 5 from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development.  Volunteers serve in Fond du Lac and Green Lake Counties.

Eligibility & enrollment

Head Start volunteers must enjoy sharing their time and experience with children. A background check is required before service can begin. An individual who is registered, or required to be registered, on a state sex offender registry, is ineligible to serve. Head Start volunteers must comply with a strict confidentiality policy. All information learned about children and their families is considered confidential.
