HEP and CAMP
Treasure Valley Community College's High School Equivalency Program (HEP) is a Migrant Education Program designed to assist farm workers and their immediate family members in obtaining a high school equivalency or GED certificate.
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federally-funded program designed to support students from migrant and seasonal farm worker backgrounds during their first year in college.
The High School Equivalency Program and the College Assistance Migrant Program have
existed since 1967 and 1972, respectively.
HEP and CAMP are educational programs which serve students from migrant or seasonal farmworker families. HEP helps students who have dropped out of high school get their High School Equivalency credential. CAMP assists students in their first year of college with academic, personal and financial support. Overall, nearly three quarters of all CAMP students graduate with baccalaureate degrees.
These two programs, which have achieved stunning success rates since their inception, are funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education and are administered by universities, colleges and non-profit organizations nationwide.
In the summer of 2016, Treasure Valley Community College was awarded five-year grants to implement both HEP and CAMP programs. Currently, TVCC is recruiting for program staff. If you want to be considered for a position with either program, application information is here.
