IMPAQ supported an in-person celebration event for the 50th birthday of Head Start that was live streamed nationally.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Office of Head Start (OHS) supports local grantees as they work to improve the school readiness of low-income children. They accomplish this by providing evidence-based, high-quality curricula and nutritional, health, and social services.

IMPAQ provided technical and logistical conference-related support to a range of OHS groups, from national and regional office staff and technical assistance providers, to local grantees and their partners. Our work included training and technical assistance; technical and content support for webinars, webcasts, and other online learning initiatives; live web-streaming services; writing and editing; curriculum development; materials development and graphic design; conference and meeting planning and management; data collection and analysis; marketing and outreach; and evaluation. Our methods included meeting management, content and materials development, and video production.

For more than two decades, we have supported similar efforts for OHS and other agencies within ACF. On this project, our team included senior project managers, meeting planners, technical writers, and subject matter experts who have provided this type of support to OHS since 2000.
