Lead Group Practice Sessions:
If you're looking for more volunteer hours, consider signing up to lead occasional group practice sessions. This is an optional opportunity in addition to your weekly one-on-one sessions with your assigned buddy. At group sessions, each volunteer works through three 20-minute activities with a group of approximately 4-7 students. We provide the activities.
This is NOT an every week commitment - you can do as many or as few sessions as you like, and you choose the times! Sessions usually happen morning/early afternoon US time on both weekdays and weekends. If you’re interested, you can leave your email here and we will email you when new sessions are scheduled. You can then decide if you'd like to sign up.
Become an ENGin Volunteer Mentor:
The ENGin mentor program connects new and experienced ENGin volunteers for one-on-one support. Through email, texts, and videochats. ENGin volunteer mentors check in with their mentees for a period of 1-2 months to help answer questions and resolve any problems.
For our experienced volunteers, the program is a great opportunity to take on a leadership role, deepen your involvement with ENGin, and pass on your experience to others. The commitment is flexible and totals just a few hours for each mentee.
Please click here if you're interested in being a mentor (any volunteer who has been with ENGin for 4 months is eligible).
Other Leadership Opportunities:
We occasionally have openings for the following volunteer leadership opportunities for experienced volunteers (at least 6 months volunteering at ENGin):
Interviewing ENGin applicants (students and volunteers)
Administering progress tests to measure how much our students' English has improved
Helping with our curriculum design
Leading one of our student or volunteer communities
When spots for these opportunities open up, we post them on our social media pages and/or monthly volunteer emails.
