El Paso Library to Offer New Borderland High School Equivalency Program for Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers

The El Paso Public Library is hosting several open house sessions to inform the community about the Borderland High School Equivalency Program (BHEP); a free, specialized high school equivalency program that is available to migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families.

The first open house is scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday, February 24, at the Armijo Library, 620 E. 7th Street. BHEP meets the special needs of migrant and seasonal farm workers in pursuit of the high school equivalency certificate similar to a GED.

The program helps qualified migrant students with test preparation, free class materials and exams. It also provides placement assistance in universities, colleges, junior colleges, and vocational institutions, military services, other post-secondary activities or career positions and is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

To qualify students need to be at least 16, not enrolled in high school and have worked in the agricultural area for 75 days in the last two years. Students may also qualify if their parents, grandparents or other family members who live in their household have worked in the agricultural area.

For more information call the El Paso Public Library at (915) 543-5468 or visit www.elpasolibrary.org

Armijo Library 620 E. 7th Street Wednesday, February 24 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
