Want to change a life from the comfort of home?

Volunteer as a conversation partner with ENGin! We offer a flexible and unique online opportunity to make a huge impact while discovering a new culture and meeting a new friend.

We’ll pair you up with a buddy in Ukraine for weekly videochats at times that are convenient for you. During your conversations, you'll practice English with your student, learn about each other's cultures, and provide a friendly ear during a difficult time. 


No teaching/tutoring experience or knowledge of Ukrainian is required to volunteer with us. All of our students can understand and hold a basic conversation in English.

Join our community of 22,000+ virtual volunteers and change a life today!

TESTIMONIAL

"I made a friend in Ukraine and we are teaching each other about our culture, our language, and our humor. We're even trading dad jokes! Both of us look forward to our chats and have a hard time wrapping it up."

REQUIREMENTS FOR VOLUNTEERS

You do not need any experience to volunteer with us! We do seek volunteers who meet the following criteria:

✅ Commitment: volunteers should be ready to dedicate 1 hour a week to ENGin for at least 10-12 weeks. If you're looking for more hours, we can accommodate that too!

✅ Age: 13 years old and above.

✅ Language Proficiency: You should be able to speak English freely with minimal mistakes. Non-native speakers welcome! 

✅ Technology: all sessions with students take place online, so volunteers should be comfortable using an online video chat platform such as Zoom, Google Meet, or Skype.

✅ Nationality/Location: due to russia's invasion of Ukraine, we are not able to accept applications from volunteers currently located on the territory of russia, Belarus, or occupied Crimea. We also cannot accept volunteers who deny or justify russian aggression, who oppose Ukraine's independence and full territorial integrity, or who support the myth of "brotherly nations."
