  Special Opportunities        

Want to get more involved with ENGin or get more volunteer hours? Check out the options here. You can also read our volunteer emails, sent out twice a month , for the latest on all special opportunities and leadership roles.

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).

 

Moderate a Themed Chat 

If you have a few hours/week free and want to deepen your involvement in ENGin, we invite you to apply to serve as a themed chat moderator at ENGin. Our private student communities are small groups with limited enrollment, to ensure that all students participate and get to know other group members.  

Group moderators are responsible for leading all aspects of their group - from keeping the conversation going in the chat with interesting prompts, polls, etc, to organizing videochat meetings about 2 times/month, to screening group members and removing those who are inactive or post inappropriate content. 

We are looking for leaders with great communication and organization skills and a pinch of creativity who are ready to commit 3 hours/week to turn their assigned group into a comfortable, friendly, and interesting online home for a group of ENGin students. You can select the theme/topic for your group and indicate the student ages and number of students you're comfortable working with.

Interested? Apply here. If you have any questions, contact Oleksandra Vasylkivska (o.vasylkivska@enginprogram.org).

 

Donate Your Professional Skills to ENGin: We have so many talented volunteers joining us with experience in a wide variety of industries. If you might be interested in using your professional skills to support ENGin, please fill out this form and we will be in touch if a need arises. Some examples of skill sets that would be valuable for our team: communications/PR, fundraising, partnership building, software development, graphic design, video creation, accounting, website design, curriculum development, etc.

 

Start an ENGin Chapter or Club: We encourage our volunteers to form ENGin clubs in their communities. ENGin clubs are independent organizations run by volunteer leaders in each community. The ENGin team supports clubs by providing ideas for events and projects, featuring clubs on social media, and certifying volunteer hours as needed. You can learn more about this opportunity here

 

Become an ENGin Content Creator: Create a video for our social media about your ENGin experience (sample ideas: sneak peek into a session, getting to know you and your student, what you’ve learned about Ukraine, etc). We can give community service hours for this work! Please send all content to our PR/SMM team lead Anna (a.nikulina@enginprogram.org)
