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.


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.

Hello, I am Ildiko from Hungary and a desperate learner of English. I have been learning this language for about 8 years and I would like to improve my speaking. Learning English is more than a hobby for me. Although my English skills are not very bad, my expectations for myself are high. Improving my English is an important part of my life every day to enhance my skills in order to be an effective English speaker. Would you have any chance to help me, please? I’d like to be tutored by a native speaker. Thanks in advance I am looking forward to hearing from you.
