Volunteer Online: Help Ukrainians Learn English

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The ENGin Program

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."

Mission Statement

ENGin is a nonprofit organization changing the world one conversation at a time. We connect English-speaking volunteers age 13+ with motivated Ukrainians for online speaking practice and cross-cultural exchange. Through simple weekly virtual conversations, our volunteers make a huge impact - helping young people overcome the language barrier, offering friendship and emotional support, and introducing them to a new culture. In a time of extreme stress for Ukrainians, weekly one-on-one conversations offer a lifeline of normalcy.

Description

We help Ukrainian youth connect with the global community by empowering them to speak fluent, conversational English. Our work breaks down borders to catalyze Ukraine’s postwar reconstruction and longer-term economic and social development.

Our one-of-a-kind model is human-centered, personalized, and authentic. Through 1-on-1 conversation, we facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between students and volunteers, creating a virtuous cycle of growth and understanding. And by doing this at unprecedented scale - 44,000 participants and counting - we’re bridging cultures and fostering a more interconnected, empathetic world.
