Local and national awards for community service

VEP programs have earned awards and recognition, both locally and nationally.  The group received official commendations for its work with high-risk youth from the Massachusetts State Senate, the Congressional Black Caucus of the U.S. Congress, and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency.

VEP’s speakers also earned the prestigious Paragon Award for Community Enrichment in 2009, awarded by local chapters of the United Way and the Red Cross, the Daily Hampshire Gazette and other community business leaders to a Hampshire County organization, in recognition of “outstanding community service.”  The award acknowledges the hundreds of volunteer hours and the thousands of dollars of free services our veterans provide in the community each year through VEP’s varied programs.
