Urban Education Outreach Initiative, VELLOP

http://uei.vassar.edu

Vassar English Language Learners Outreach Program (VELLOP) provides tutoring services to ELL students throughout the district, focused on dropout prevention and literacy improvement. The ultimate goal is to help Poughkeepsie ELLs complete high school and go on to post-secondary education. The ELL population in the Poughkeepsie school district is made up primarily of Latino, Vietnamese, and Jamaican students, with a few North African students as well. VELLOP offers programs for these students at Poughkeepsie High School and two Poughkeepsie elementary schools.
