Volunteer English Program Mission

The Volunteer English Program (VEP) enhances the economic and social quality of life for immigrant families, community members, consumers, employers and employees in Chester County by providing tutoring for adults to improve their English language skills, their American cultural understanding, and their participation in the communities we share.


An Evening to Help VEP Bloom

You are cordially invited to a global party and "Fall in Philly" raffle at the Downingtown Country Club on Thursday, April 9 to benefit the Volunteer English Program in Chester County. Join us in honoring Susan Heist, 2015 Betsy Hawkes Memorial Award recipient. Capacity for Change will be presented as the 2015 VEP Community Partner Award. The event will also feature a VEP Student Speaker.

This year's event represents continued growth in the ability to impact the lives of immigrants and refugees living and working throughout Chester County. The "Evening to Help VEP Bloom" event allows us to raise awareness and funds to support our year-round programming and reach those in need of all levels of English language tutoring.
