Education is the key to improving the quality of life for everyone, and that’s why Help New Mexico is working to provide the opportunity for people with migratory or seasonal farm-working backgrounds and their families to obtain their GEDs.
The lack of a diploma can be a barrier to finding a stable, well-paying job. In today’s ever-changing job landscape, the one thing to count on is that employers are looking for candidates with a high school diploma or equivalent.
If you’re a migrant or seasonal farmworker, it can be difficult to get a diploma or equivalent in the traditional classroom way. HEP’s intensive preparatory instruction, tutoring and supportive services, customized to the individual’s schedule, and once the student gets their GED, HEP works with them to find a job or military placement or enrollment in secondary education.
Services can include:
- Classroom Training
- Training-related Supportive Services
- Academic & Vocational Counseling
- Textbooks & Supplies
- Assistance with Admission & Financial Aid Applications
- Job Placement
- Testing Fees
