The Massachusetts Migrant Education Program supports migrant children and youth in their efforts to meet high academic standards through supplemental services that address barriers created by a migrant lifestyle such as frequent moves, educational interruption, cultural and language differences, and health-related problems.

We do this by supporting the children, youth and their families in:

  • Identifying and recruiting migrant students residing throughout Massachusetts
  • Providing high quality supplemental and support services to students, ages 3-22
  • Working with parents to build their advocacy and leadership skills through workshops and active Parent Advisory Councils
  • Establishing and fostering relationships with schools, community agencies, organizations and businesses to coordinate services for migrant students.

Services Included (H2)

  • Academic summer programs for preschool through 12th grades
  • Assistance in preschool enrollment and family literacy programming
  • Afterschool Tutoring for K-12
  • Family/Student Advocacy (Parent-Teacher conferences, IEP processes, McKinney/Vento)
  • English, Life Skills and Pre-HiSET classes for Out of School Youth
  • Career and Graduation Exploration for High School and Out of School Youth
  • Referrals to Community Based Organizations and School Based Programming through distributing program information and assisting in enrollment

Collaboration (H3)

Through cooperative planning and information sharing, MMEP coordinates its activities with school districts, local education agencies, community organizations, employers and state government agencies to ensure the most effective and efficient delivery of education and support services to migrant children, youth and their families.
