DUPLIN COUNTY MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM
The mission of the Migrant Education Program is to help migrant children and youth meet high academic challenges by overcoming the obstacles created by frequent moves, educational disruption, cultural and language differences, and health-related problems.
A large percentage of Duplin County's economy comes from agriculture therefore a lot of workers come to Duplin County with their families in search of seasonal work (picking tobacco, blueberries, sweet potatoe, etc). These families (including out-of-school youth) move frequently and can put their children at risk of staying behind in their studies or not attending school altogether. Our goal is to help the children of these migrant families so that someday they will graduate from school.
We can aid migrant students with interpreting, tutoring, school materials, classes, and transportation.
The Migrant Education program serves all migrant students in the Duplin County district. For any help, questions, or reports call Francisco Rivas-Diaz (Migrant Recruiter) at email@example.com or 910-284-1468
