2019 Georgia MEP Summer Programs (Information & Resources)

Georgia MEP summer programs are pivotal in providing supplemental services to migrant children and youth statewide. The summer time provides immense opportunities for extended learning to help bridge gaps caused by high mobility patterns and academic disruption migrant children and youth face during the regular school year. The summer programs offered statewide provide supplemental academic services for migrant students in school (K-12) in addition to non-academic supplemental services dedicated to migrant youth not enrolled in school such as out-of-school Youth (OSY) and dropouts (DO) migrant participants. The coordination of efforts, design, implementation, and evaluation of summer project plans demonstrates the commitment of local educational agencies, community partners, local and or state non-profit organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, etc. to providing the services migrant children need in order to succeed not only in school but in their own communities as well.
