MIGRANT HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY PROGRAM (HEP)

 
General Information
Description of ServiceHelps migratory and seasonal farmworkers (or children of such workers) who are 16 years of age or older and not currently enrolled in school to obtain the equivalent of a high school diploma and, subsequently, to gain employment or begin postsecondary education or training. The program serves students across the country annually, and New York State was just awarded a sub-grant to provide these services regionally through the local MEP Program (administered through ESBOCES). The competitive award was made for up to five years of funding. The purpose of the HEP Program is to help migrant and seasonal farmworkers and members of their immediate family: (1) obtain a general education diploma that meets the guidelines for high school equivalency (HSE) established by New York State; and (2) gain employment or be placed in an institution of higher education (IHE) or other postsecondary education or training.
