Events and Education

The Oregon Head Start Association hosts five conferences annually in addition to smaller workshops. On this page, you will find information about OHSA sponsored training opportunities (blue) as well as those offered by community partners (green) that are of interest to the Head Start community.

Are you planning on hosting a training or conference and would like to partner with OHSA? We would love to collaborate! Every year we budget funds to sponsor training opportunities. Please contact our Executive Director Tristin Mock to discuss how we can help.
