Partnership with the Veterans Education Project
We are thrilled to welcome our new partner, the Veterans Education Project
The Veterans Education Project (VEP), founded in 1982 by Vietnam veterans, is an independent non-profit organization based in Amherst, Massachusetts. VEP trains and supports local military veterans to share their personal stories of war and homecoming in area schools and public venues. VEP presentations educate about the realities and human costs of war, promote dialogue, and share healing strategies and resources for veterans and their families. Through speaking, our veteran speakers gain an authentic connection with our community, provide a bridge between civilian and military worlds, and help all of us to heal the emotional wounds of war.
