VEP Winter 2018 Annual Appeal

"You give us arms to fly

You give us words to speak

You give us power to go over barriers

You give us the force to continue

You give us new feet to walk in this beautiful land

You give us that shining word - Welcome!

You give us the definition of dreams,

So that we can catch it and feel it."

Premisa Kerthi, poet and VEP adult learner

For adults who speak Albanian, like Premisa, or one of the over 58 languages spoken in Chester County, life is difficult and inclusion in our local communities is often out of reach...until they meet a VEP tutor and begin instruction.

For 33 years, the Volunteer English Program (VEP) has offered this vital link to success to adults whose native language is not English. Our method – free, one-to-one tutoring, through the generous contribution of time by community engaged volunteers – has proven successful for thousands of adult learners, and VEP is on the forefront, serving thousands more with your investment of time and money.

Today, our waiting list continues to grow, with over 150 individuals waiting upwards of one year for a VEP tutor.

Your generous gift provides the essential services for immigrants and refugees living or working in Chester County. Your gift to the VEP Annual Fund directly impacts all that we do towards changing lives. 

Thank you!
