ENGin
Description

ENGin is a nonprofit that pairs Ukrainian youth with English-speaking volunteers for free online conversation practice and cross-cultural connection. ENGin's program, launched in March 2020, is the only one of its kind in Ukraine - unlimited 1-on-1 speaking sessions open to any young Ukrainian, anywhere, at any time. ENGin complements humanitarian aid efforts by giving Ukrainians the skills they need to support themselves in the longer term. Over half of Ukrainians have lost their jobs due to the war; millions have been forced to flee the country. We help open doors to new job opportunities (including remote roles for those still in Ukraine), fill in gaps in education when schools are forced to close, and ease the resettlement process for refugees. As we empower each of our students to rebuild their life, we're also creating a generation of English-fluent, culturally competent Ukrainians ready to rebuild their nation.

Volunteer Activities
ENGin is looking for volunteers to serve as conversation partners for Ukrainian youth. This is a flexible and unique opportunity to make a difference without leaving your home. Plus, you'll make a friend across the world! Here's how it works: we'll pair you up with a Ukrainian student to video chat each week at times that are convenient for you. We match students and volunteers based on interests and schedules. All of our students have a basic knowledge of English, and we also provide detailed session plans for you to use. The commitment starts at 1 hour/week. To join our team, please fill out this short form: https://forms.gle/QSXn8jN8uUPoMrK26 or find our application on our website www.enginprogram.org/volunteer. Then, we'll email you within 1-2 days to schedule a 15-minute video call (check your spam folder if you don't see the interview invite in your inbox!)
