Head Start Alums Tell Their Stories

The First Five Years Fund recently launched Our Head Start, a website where successful adults who attended Head Start as children are telling their stories.

It's part of an advocacy campaign to take the conversation about return on investment from early childhood out of the numbers and down to the personal level.

The current lead story is a video clip of an registered nurse who grew up in South Boston. Other videos include an entrepreneur, a children's author, and an obstetrician.
