Head Start is a federally funded program which requires a 20% community match (in-kind). The in-kind or non-federal share is raised through volunteer services, donation of equipment and supplies, and donated space.
A Head Start organization cannot exist without the devotion, commitment and vision of the community, donors and volunteers. Take your love of children to Cleveland County School District Head Start through our broad spectrum of available volunteer opportunities. Volunteer leadership is vital to the success of the Head Start program. Our volunteers and donors are key instruments in implementing the Head Start Performance Standards, and we appreciate your time and contributions. We invite and encourage your input, and welcome suggestions for additional content at any time.
