The Chester County Commissioners recently presented a check for $7,500 to representatives from the Chester County-based non-profit Volunteer English Program. The funds are part of the County’s annual appropriations to organizations and non-profits and will be used by VEP to help fund the organization’s volunteer tutor training program which supports English language and cultural instruction for new and long-term residents. The check was presented by County Commissioners Michelle Kichline and Terence Farrell at the Commissioners’ most recent Sunshine public meeting.  For more than 32 years, VEP has helped thousands of Chester County’s most vulnerable newcomers learn English and achieve U.S. citizenship through community-based, non-classroom instruction that is available morning through evening, seven days a week.
