Great Start Collaborative
Improving Early Childhood Outcomes
in Muskegon County
The Great Start of Muskegon is a collaboration of parents, educators, health professionals, business and community leaders who are working together to ensure that our children are safe, healthy, and eager and able to succeed in school and in life. New members are welcome. The GSC meets quarterly, typically on the second Tuesday of March, June, September and December. Click to view the minutes and materials from our last quarterly meeting.
