Maine High School Equivalency Program (HEP)
The Maine High School Equivalency Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education, will support up to 30 migratory and seasonal farm workers and their immediate family members as they obtain their GED, the equivalent of a high school diploma. The project is supporting a wide array of support services to eligible participants (those who have at least 75 days of farm work over the last two years, etc.) in five regions of the state: Aroostook, Piscataquis, Washington/Hancock, Kennebec/Somerset and Portland. Maine HEP is working in close collaboration with the Maine Department of Education’s Adult Education and Migrant Education Programs as well as with Mano en Mano, Maine Migrant Health, local adult education programs, career centers and community, employment and social service providers. www.mainehep.org
