Summer Institute for Head Start Management

July 22-26, 2019

at Cal State University East Bay Downtown Oakland Center 

for information on the Basic Skills Summer Institute click this link

The Summer Institute curriculum is based entirely on the Parent, Family Community Engagement (PFCE) framework, and on the goals and Relationship Based Competencies (RBCs) listed in the appendix to ACF-IM-HS-12-05. We cover the RBCs for Supervisors, presenting the latest in social work theory and practice to help you implement the PFCE framework.

The Management Summer Institute will be held in Oakland, CA on July 22–26, 2019 at the Cal State University Downtown Oakland Center.

The Parent, Family Community Engagement (PFCE) framework requires HUGE changes for how Head Start family workers assist families. Our courses cover all of the Relationship Based Competencies in ACF-IM-HS-12-05. The Office of Head Start eventually wants each local program to develop their in-house training capacity. Sending your staff to our courses is one way to develop the ability of your staff to provide that training.

We provide these courses for college credit for Head Start Supervisors in conjunction with the California State University East Bay. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only West Coast provider of university-credit courses that are keyed exactly to the Relationship Based Competencies in the PFCE framework. These courses take place during the summer at the California State University downtown Oakland campus.

The Summer Institute faculty are drawn from the Schools of Social Work and Social Welfare at U.C. Berkeley, CSU East Bay, San Francisco State, and other area universities and their MSW graduates, and from Head Start programs.

The Summer Institute for Head Start Management offers 2 college credits via California State University East Bay for $178.

All Head Start Management Summer Institute participants get:

  • Four days of intensive training in how to apply social work principles and practices to implement the new Parent, Family, Community Engagement framework.
  • A CD with all the PowerPoints and other handouts from the workshops.
  • Up to 17 CEUs for LCSWs or MFTs. (for Management Institute only, from CSUEB)
  • After Hours: A free guided tour of San Francisco for the first 49 registrants.
  • A get-acquainted Reception hosted by the Center for Community Futures.
  • New ways to meet the goals and standards created by the RBCs.
  • Network with your peers and learn how they are doing family development.

Our faculty includes University of California, San Francisco State, and Cal State University faculty and MSW graduates. You can increase the skills of staff, figure out how to implement the many moving parts of the PFCE, and discuss how to meet the Monitoring Protocol requirements.

The Summer Institute for Management is specifically tailored to Family and Community Partnership Supervisors (especially new supervisors) and Family Service Workers. This is not a generic curriculum. These workshops are based completely on the PFCE framework and Head Start regulations. Send your in-house PFCE trainers. This is a train-the-trainer event. The schedule is posted below.

The program begins at with an optional event at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, July 21, and ends at noon on Friday, July 26.
