Fredonia Migrant Education Outreach Program: Empowerment for Life's Challenges.
Magner, Eleanor; Phillips, Linda
The Fredonia Migrant Education Outreach Program serves not only the educational needs of migrant students in western New York, but also health, nutrition and other needs of the students and their families. The program's unique feature is its in-home programs. Developed at the State University of New York (SUNY) College at Fredonia, there are now 11 program centers throughout New York. Basic program components include an initial home visit during which the tutor introduces program services; an early childhood program consisting of two in-home components of Even Start and parenting education; in-school tutoring from kindergarten through 12th grade; literature and adolescent outreach after-school programs; monthly luncheons for parents at which community organizations present their services; a parent advisory committee; an in-home, family literacy program; a 6-week summer program for students in pre-K through 12th grade; and an evening program for students who are not in school. In addition, tutors assist families with transportation to doctor's appointments when needed and assist those families who do not have health insurance to enroll in the NYS Child Health Plus Program. There is a 1-week on-campus immersion experience for high school students at SUNY College at Oswego, and 3-day on-campus retreats at SUNY Geneseo for young women and young men to explore career options. The migrant program also supplies necessities such as clothing, furniture, food, and school supplies when needed. (TD)
