The Volunteer English Program invites you to become a one-to-one English tutor to an adult immigrant or refugee in Chester County. Registration is now open for VEP's Virtual Tutor Training Workshop. It is designed to fully prepare volunteer tutors to teach English to VEP’s long waiting list of adult English language learners who live or work in Chester County.
Consider this fulfilling opportunity if you...
- want to make an important and lasting impact on someone’s life and your own
- want to help an adult succeed while strengthening your local community
- enjoy learning about other cultures
- want to be inspired.
VEP professional staff will prepare you to work in-person or virtually with an English language learner at any level of proficiency. Tutor and student will decide whether to meet virtually, in-person, or a combination of both. Meetings are held at a mutually convenient location (local library, cafe, etc.) or using an online platform (Zoom, etc.)
When: April 2 (Tuesday), April 4 (Thursday), and April 8 (Monday)
Time: 9:00-11:00 am each day
Registration is will open soon!
A free information session will be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024, at 6:00 pm on Zoom. Please contact Volunteer English Program to receive the Zoom link if you are interested in attending and learning more about our program.

About Volunteer English Program In Chester County
790 East Market St., Suite 215, West Chester, PA 19382, US
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.
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.
