Change someone’s life and see how it changes yours!

Tutors provide weekly, one-to-one English language instruction for adult immigrants or refugees who speak one of over 50 languages spoken in Chester County. Tutors must be available for a one-year commitment to tutoring. Prior teaching experience is not required. Life experience, time, and compassion for helping others is a plus!

Tutors and students alike are adults who represent all ages, backgrounds, and interests. These partnerships open doors to many life-changing opportunities for both students and tutors.

VEP professional staff will prepare you to work remotely or in person with an English Language Learner (ELL) at any level of proficiency. Tutor and student will decide whether to start virtually or in person. The goal is to eventually meet in person when both parties feel it is safe enough to do so. Prior teaching experience or fluency in a language other than English is not required.

About Volunteer English Program In Chester County

Location:

790 East Market St., Suite 215, West Chester, PA 19382, US

Mission Statement

The Volunteer English Program connects volunteers with adult English language learners to provide one-to-one tutoring and cultural enrichment that empowers immigrants to be successful.

Description

Since 1986, VEP has helped thousands of Chester County’s most vulnerable newcomers learn English and achieve U.S. citizenship. In its first years, the program saw modest beginnings and served fewer than a dozen students in the basement of the church. Today, VEP depends on approximately 300 passionate and dedicated volunteers who deliver free one-to-one English language instruction to meet the urgent and specific needs of adult immigrants and refugees in Chester County. In all of our work and interactions, we seek to be welcoming, compassionate, understanding, and inspired. These guiding principles shape our work.
