WASHINGTON, D.C. - The over 220 members of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), www.USUBC.org, are proud to welcome ENGin as a new member.

ENGin is working to help rebuild Ukraine by ensuring that every young Ukrainian can confidently speak to foreigners in fluent, conversational English. The nonprofit’s unique program pairs Ukrainian youth with English speakers for free 1-on-1 online conversation practice and cross-cultural connection.

Founded in 2020, ENGin has already connected over 15,000 volunteers with 17,000 students. For Ukrainians, the program serves as a widely accessible educational opportunity, a path to a better job, and a lifeline for emotional support during a difficult time. For Ukraine, increasing rates of English fluency will propel the country’s postwar reconstruction and longer-term economic and social development.

“At ENGin, we’re working to activate Ukraine’ enormous economic potential by helping young Ukrainians smash the language barrier in a matter of months,” said Katerina Manoff, ENGin Founder & CEO. Katerina will represent ENGin on the USUBC Board of Directors.

“Our mission closely aligns with that of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, as we’re laying the foundation for closer business ties between the US and Ukraine. We’re thrilled to join the USUBC and connect with like-minded organizations," stated Manoff.

Morgan Williams, President, and CEO of USUBC said “At the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, we recognize the importance of education as a catalyst for economic growth and effective business cooperation between our two nations.

"We are thrilled to welcome ENGin as the newest member and look forward to our fruitful partnership that will contribute to the recovery and development of Ukraine”.

ENGin is a women-led 501(c)3 nonprofit registered in both the US and Ukraine.

NOTE: ENGin recently launched a new service offering 1-on-1 online Ukrainian lessons with experienced professional teachers. This opportunity is open to learners of all ages and levels located anywhere in the world. The curriculum is totally customized to each learner's needs, from beginners to heritage speakers.
