The Vanguardia Popular Socialista (VPS, Popular Socialist Vanguard) was a Chilean political party created in 1938. It was the direct heir of the National Socialist Movement of Chile (MNS) and founded as a consequence of the failed fascist coup in 1938 and its repression. It included Jorge González von Marées and Miguel Serrano, while former MNS member Carlos Keller refused to join it. The VPS obtained 2,5% at the 1941 legislative elections, having two deputies elected [1]

The VPS was dissolved in 1942, the majority of its members joining Juan Gómez Millas' Unión Nacionalista de Chile.
