More than 80 hours of classroom instruction include lectures, group discussions, case studies, and workshops. The program is June 18-29, 2018.

Graduates of the Fellows Program are awarded a certificate from UCLA. They are also given the option to receive academic-level credits at an additional cost. The program has enhanced the management and leadership capabilities of more than 1,500 Head Start directors and managers nationwide.

Target Audience

This program is open to Head Start and Early Head Start directors and managers who have been in their current position for a minimum of two years, and have experience in a leadership role at a local, state, or regional community organization. Participation in a community organization does not need to be current.

In addition, participants must identify a “co-participant” who will attend the final two and a half days of the program. The co-participant is identified as the participant’s supervisor or board chair. Two-person teams from the same program also are eligible to apply (limited number selected).

Cost for Participants

The National Center on Program Management and Fiscal Operations (PMFO) will defray the majority of program costs for both the participant and co-participant. This will include tuition, training materials, lodging, and most meals. Participants are responsible for a registration fee of $3,100. Participants and co-participants are also responsible for their travel expenses to and from Los Angeles.

How to Apply

Selected participants will be notified by May 4, 2018.

Training completed by Head Start director Allison Dybing-Driessen will ultimately benefit children and their families from Early Explorers Head Start & early Head Start in Devils  Lake, ND. Allison Dybing-Driessen is one of 40 graduates of the UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Head Start Management Fellows Program, an intensive two-week program, conducted at the UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles. The program was developed in 1991 to strengthen the management skills of Head Start administrators.

“As a former participant, I can personally acknowledge the insight and education this program offers to Head Start leaders,” said Ron Herndon, Chairman of the National Head Start Association. “Participants learn about financial management and data analysis, while developing a keen understanding of the broader environment in which Head Start operates.”

Throughout the program, fellows are equipped with the tools they will need to effectively lead and deliver developmental services in changing environments, secure funding, efficiently implement programs and network with other Head Start managers across the nation. Fellowships are awarded annually to Head Start administrators who have been selected by a specially assembled Program Advisory Board.
