MEP Hotline

National MEP Hotline

The National Migrant Education Hotline is free and accessible to migrant farmworkers, families and out-of-school youth anywhere in the United States. The calls are answered by Hotline Specialists who can make referrals for assistance based on the caller’s needs. The Hotline is currently supported by contracts with states of California, Florida, Texas, Kentucky, Georgia, Arizona and Arkansas.

Migrant workers can call the Hotline to get help enrolling their children in school or for other educational services. There are preschool, summer school, high school equivalency programs (HEP), and College Assistance Migrant Programs (CAMP) all around the country and ESCORT can help migrant families access them.

Region 17 Migrant Education Program

The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to design and support programs that help migrant students overcome the challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, and other difficulties associated with a migratory lifestyle.  These efforts are aimed at helping migrant students succeed in school and successfully transition to post-secondary education and/or employment.



Region 17 identifies over 1,400 migrant students in 15 Project Districts, 15 SSA Member Districts, and 32 Non-Project Districts. The Migrant Education Program is authorized under Title I, Part C.  Our migrant team is committed to build upon the success of our students and our program.
