Volunteer Online: Help Ukrainians Learn English

A year after russia’s ruthless invasion, Ukrainians need your help more than ever. At ENGin, hundreds of Ukrainian youth are waiting for an English conversation partner: to help them break through the language barrier, to settle in a new home or prepare for a new job, or just to provide a distraction from the horrors of war.

Can you spare 1 hour a week and make a difference in a young Ukrainian's life?

Volunteering with ENGin is a flexible and unique opportunity to make a difference without leaving your home. We’ll pair you up with a student to video chat each week at times that are convenient for you. No teaching experience or knowledge of Ukrainian is required. All of our students have a basic knowledge of English, and we also provide detailed session plans for you to use.

Here's what three ENGin volunteers say about their experience.

"This is an amazing organization that helps students learn English in Ukraine just by having conversations. It is a great experience, and I look forward to talking to my buddy every week. It is a great way to learn about Ukrainian culture and see a unique perspective."

"This program has been, I think, life-changing for both of us. I really consider her more like my daughter right now. That's how close we have become!"

"I'm so glad that I got this experience and was able to make a new friend. Teaching someone English, or a language you are fluent in is easy for anyone to do. By putting in a small amount of time, I'm able to make a huge impact on my student."

About The ENGin Program


42 Highview Avenue #4, Stamford, CT 06907, US

Mission Statement

ENGin is a grassroots nonprofit dedicated to rebuilding Ukraine through the power of the English language. Our one-of-a-kind program is working to pair 100,000 Ukrainian youth with English speakers worldwide for free online conversation practice and cross-cultural connection. On an individual level, we equip students to access academic and professional opportunities. On a national level, we connect Ukraine with the world, spurring economic growth and social progress.


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.
