E-5 Effective Recruiting Strategies Across Cultures

Participants will leave this session with an understanding of effective strategies for recruiting migrant families across different cultures. The primary focus will be examples from the Maine Migrant Education Program (MEP) recruiters and migrant families, such as utilizing community leaders, understanding your students' cultures and home locations, and ways to promote the MEP to different families and ages across cultures. The Maine MEP recruits students each year that identify as Micmac, Passamaquoddy, Hispanic, Haitian, and other cultures. The recruitment numbers for the Maine MEP have increased over the past four years due to successful strategies tailored to each family.
