1-on-1 English practice for Ukrainian youth

WHAT WE DO

OUR PROGRAM

ENGin is a nonprofit organization that pairs Ukrainian youth with English-speakers for free online conversation practice and cross-cultural connection. We work with students age 13-30 and volunteers age 14+.

OUR MISSION 

We're helping a generation of Ukrainian youth improve their spoken English and intercultural skills, equipping them to access academic and professional opportunities.

HOW IT WORKS

ENGin pairs English learners with volunteers from around the world to conduct weekly online speaking sessions. Every learner and volunteer is screened to ensure their fit for the program. Participants are then matched based on preferences, interests, and availability to ensure an effective and mutually enjoyable communication experience. After a match is made, ENGin supports learners and volunteers throughout their participation in the program with tips, resources, and problem resolution.

OUR VISION

We are transforming Ukraine through the power of one-on-one connections. Each volunteer-student pairing is a thread tying Ukraine to the world. Today, these connections fight Russia's attempts to isolate and destroy Ukraine. Tomorrow, a generation of English-fluent, culturally competent young Ukrainians will rebuild our nation.

TESTIMONIALS

Since I joined ENGin, I've changed my life. I've become more self-assured and actually started improving my English knowledge. Apart from boosting my confidence and English speaking skills, I am learning to communicate with people of different nationalities, opinions, and cultures. English listening skills too, a section Ukrainian students especially struggle with.
