Guidebook: InCamp Education for Migrant Farmworkers.
Lynch, Robert; Smith, Mona
An In-Camp Learning Program focuses on the specific needs of the out-of-school youth and adult migrant farmworker. Although its primary intent is that of education, other areas such as health and social services are addressed. In 1975, New York's In-Camp Learning Program focused on the assessed and expressed educational needs of approximately 400 migrant farmworkers in 15 camps in the counties of Livingston, Steuben, and Wyoming. Its major goal was to help the migrant master those tools of communication, thinking, and self-direction that best help him to make those decisions critical to his daily and future life. A teaching team consisting of a male and female instructor, a tutor, and a migrant aide served each camp. The program director assisted the professional and tutorial staffs to develop relevant educational materials, supervised the teaching teams in the camps, and met on an individual or team basis to discuss any needs. The staff was educated as to other programs and agencies to which migrants with special needs could be referred. This guidebook presents general guidelines for developing an In-Camp Learning Program; outlines the 1975 In-Camp Learning Program's basic educational needs, objectives, learning experiences, and evaluative procedures; summarizes the activities conducted by the teaching teams in the various camps; and briefly describes various supportive services and programs.
