What is BUENO HEP?

The University of Colorado at Boulder, School of Education (BUENO programs) and Aims Community College (Continuing Education) in Fort Lupton are collaborating on a federally funded grant program known as HEP (high school equivalency program). In 2008, the School of Education and the BUENO Center for Multicultural Education were granted five years of funding to develop and implement the BUENO High School Equivalency Program (BUENO HEP) for migrant and seasonal farm workers who work and reside in the Arkansas Valley, San Luis Valley or in Platte River Valley.

The BUENO-HEP site at Aims Community College currently provides GED official tests, practice tests, GED classes (taught bilingually in English and Spanish), tutoring and other services. These services are free if you qualify for the program.

Who qualifies for BUENO HEP?

Any migrant or seasonally employed agricultural worker or their children and parents.
In order to qualify for BUENO-HEP, students or their immediate family members, must have worked, a minimum of 75 days in migrant or seasonal farm work within the last two years.
