With the trending arrival of new immigrants daily, the need to learn English is stronger than ever! The Volunteer English Program invites you to become a one-to-one English tutor to an adult immigrant or refugee in Chester County, for whom this program is free. Registration is now open for VEP’s Virtual Tutor Training Workshop in June, 2022.
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.
Prior teaching experience or fluency in a language other than English is not required.
VEP professional staff will prepare you to work remotely or in-person with an English Language Learner (ELL) at any level of proficiency. Your volunteer commitment will include meeting with your student twice weekly for 1.5 hours per session for at least one year. These partnerships open doors to many life-changing opportunities for students and tutors, and the need is always there.
The next Virtual Tutor Training Workshop will be held on June 2nd, 7th, and 9th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm each evening via Zoom.
Workshop fee is $40.00 per person. For more details and information, please click HERE.
