Abstract

The CSUF-HEP program is a federally funded five-year grant that aims to serve a minimum of 100 students each year for five years, with a 75% graduation rate goal in obtaining a HSE Certificate. Through the CSUF High School Equivalency Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, educators are able to work with migrant worker students to help them earn a High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate. The goal of the program is to implement and deliver a high quality GED instructional program that provides academic, social, and cultural supports to enable students to succeed. CSUF-HEP goals emphasize helping migrant and seasonal agricultural workers attain a High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate, and enroll in postsecondary education, or career opportunities. This could contribute to closing the educational opportunity gap in reference to social justice and inclusion within migrant farm working communities. This presentation will show the impact CSUF-HEP had on California agricultural communities.
