Our Development Process

VCV Social Enterprise for a better community!

About us

Founded in October of 2014, we are a social enterprise for educational development, cultural exchange, and international cooperation based in Hanoi, Vietnam.  VCV specializes in helping Vietnamese students with their English language skills specifically pronunciation and conversational grammar.  As of 2017, VCV has impacted the lives of over three hundred Vietnamese children in Hanoi, 200 Vietnamese students in the Hanoi outskirts, and over 400 Vietnamese adult learners. VCV has hosted over two hundred traveling English speaking volunteers and continues to grow.

Projects

We believe that education is fundamental to sustainable development, therefore our aim is to create an open and fair learning environment for all our participants to learn. At many universities in Viet Nam, students learn a lot of English grammar but rarely are they taught to correctly speak and converse in English. Once they graduate, then, they have difficulties finding employment in the best paying jobs, which often require these English language skills. We aim to give our students the best chance possible to improve their speaking skills, to find a good job and improve their overall well-being.

Volunteer Opportunities

We need English speaking volunteers from all over the world, especially from countries such as America, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, etc... who could help us together in different programs. We DO NOT REQUIRE a Teaching Certificate, but do prefer you to have some experience of teaching. However, if you have no experience but are passionate about helping our students, we're more than willing to help you get to grips with teaching.

I cannot recommend volunteering at VCV enough! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!All the students were incredibly enthusiastic about learning English. The fellow volunteers have become friends for life. The apartment is in an incredible area, everything is easily accessible
I strongly recommend that if you thinking of volunteering get in touch with VCVThe students attending are very eager to learn and very helpful if you need to know anything during your stay.Its the best thing I have ever done while holidaying.
I definitely recommend this program to anyone serious about teaching and helping the community. Truly an experience I will never forget. I had the time of my life teaching here and can only wish to return one day. The students were the absolute best
I worked at VCV for just under a month and I had such a fantastic time! It was the highlight of my whole trip.I was so sad to leave and I will always remember my time with VCV and I am so grateful for everything Miss Hay did throughout my stay to make it a really unforgettable experience.
