ENGin is looking for volunteers aged 14-25 to serve as speaking buddies for international students. This is a super-flexible and unique opportunity to make a difference without leaving your room. Plus, you'll get to know peers 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 age, interests, and schedules. All of our students have a basic knowledge of English, and we also provide session plans for you to use. The commitment starts at 1 hour/week.

To join our team, please fill out this short form: Then, we'll email you to schedule a 15-minute video call to get to know you better and answer any questions. We have some flexibility in when you can start volunteering, though most of our students are hoping to begin in September.

About ENGin



Mission Statement

ENGin pairs Ukrainian students with English-speaking peers for free online conversation practice and cross-cultural connection. We're helping a generation of Ukrainian youth improve their spoken English and intercultural skills, equipping them to access academic and professional opportunities.


Our program was founded to fill a major gap in English-language education in Ukraine: while many teenagers study English grammar and vocabulary in school, few have access to high-quality, affordable opportunities to practice the essential skill of speaking.

ENGin allows volunteers to make an impact without leaving their rooms while also expanding their cultural horizons. We work with volunteers ages 14-25; the commitment starts at 1-2 hours a week.
