Volunteer English Program celebrates 32 years of continuous outreach to friends, neighbors, and co-workers who dedicate themselves to learning English as a new language, American customs, and sharing their culture with all of us.
Last year’s celebratory event recognized the endeavors of the program’s volunteers and contributors, and funds raised support VEP’s efforts to teach English and cultural enrichment to those living or working in Chester County.
