Head Start administrator graduates from UCLA program
Joliet - Training completed by Head Start executive Ericka Williams will ultimately benefit children and their families from Catholic Charities Diocese of Joliet in Joliet, Illinois. Ericka is one of 40 graduates of the June 2017 UCLA Head Start Management Fellows Program, an intensive 12-day leadership and management development program, conducted at the UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles. The program was developed in 1991 to strengthen the management and leadership skills of Head Start administrators and is currently funded by the Head Start National Center on Program and Management and Fiscal Operations.
“Head Start creates the foundation for a wonderful future for children and their families,” said Yasmine Daniel-Vargas, director of the National Center on Program Management and Fiscal Operations. “Graduates of the UCLA Head Start Management Fellows Program have introduced successful community initiatives that make a lasting impact on the health, nutrition, and school readiness of the children they serve. The commitment of the UCLA Anderson School of Management to teaching excellence is a hallmark of the program’s enduring success.”
The Head Start programs provide comprehensive developmental services to preschool children and their families.
