NH Migrant Education Program

Home | Eligibility | Get Involved | Contact Us | Español


The New Hampshire Migrant Education Program (NH MEP) assists migrant children and youth who have moved within the last 36 months (3 years) for agricultural or fishing work.

The majority of students receive services for an hour a week during their free time. Generally, NH MEP tutors go to a student’s home or give classes remotely using Skype. Students under the age of 18 who receive in-home tutoring must have a parent or guardian present during their lessons. To further ensure the safety of our families, we ask all of our tutors to obtain background checks.

The NH MEP collaborates with Migrant Education Programs (MEP) in neighboring states, and is part of a national network of MEPs that can be found in almost every state in the United States. This ensures that once students are identified they will have access to similar assistance, even if they move across state lines.

We offer a variety of services to students dependent on their individual needs, including:

  • Tutoring Services (at home, at school, or via Skype)
    • Homework and subject-specific support
