Looking to Help from Home?: ENGin - Virtual Volunteer Opportunity
ENGin is looking for volunteers to serve as speaking buddies for international students. This is a super-flexible and unique opportunity to make a difference without leaving your room. Plus, you’ll get to know peers across the world!
Here’s how it works: ENGin will pair you up with a Ukrainian student to video chat each week at times that are convenient for you. We match students and volunteers based on age, gender preference, interests, and schedules. All of our students have studied English, so you don’t have to worry about reviewing grammar rules – just chat about school, the latest news stories, favorite books and movies, holiday plans, or anything else that’s on your mind. We also provide tons of resources, activities, and ideas for you to use. Your speaking sessions can be 30-60 minutes long.
To join their team, email Volunteer@adelphi.edu to fill out a short form. The form will help them understand your background and match you with a student. Once they receive your form, they will reach out to schedule a 15-20 minute video call to provide more details about volunteering with ENGin and answer any questions.
After completing your volunteer time be sure to input your hours on MyAULife under service hours by clicking your picture in the top right hand corner of MyAULife.
