This paper presents the results of a scientific ped- agogical research, which goal was to reveal the main features of the socio-educational programs for migrant farm workers in Mexico, studying the projects of the Mexican govern- ment to integrate the agricultural laborers into social and working life. The study showed that the socio-educational programs for migrant farm workers in Mexico are character- ized by the following aspects: decentralization; budgets and government actions at national and local levels; educational cooperation with non-governmental organizations as well as private institutions and NGOs, both domestic and for- eign; influence of civil organizations and their organization in networks; diversity of educational programs; creation of training programs for educators.
