Drury Somos (CAMP)

Somos is a program fully-funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s CAMP (College Assistance Migrant Program) and is designed to provide support, training, mentoring, and academic counseling to the family members of migrant or seasonal agricultural workers. Federal funds will provide $373,047 this year and $1.94 million over the five-year grant period to support the Somos program.

In this first year of the Somos program, we invite you to speak with our excited team of program leaders and encourage others to apply to be involved in this opportunity to pursue educational and professional success!
