The TEEI Buddy Program

A Mentorship Program For Ukrainians

Are you a Ukrainian looking for support in your host country?

The Educational Equality Institute is here to help you. Our Buddy Program will pair you up with a partner from the host country that you have chosen as your new residence. They will be available either in person (depending on your location) or online to help you feel more at ease in the new culture and facilitate your integration into the local society. They can also help with language practice, meet you for a cup of coffee to answer any worries you may have, or simply be a sympathetic conversation partner in these difficult times.

 

How does it work?

Your Buddy/ Mentor — a Volunteer from The Educational Equality Institute will:

  • Be your point of contact for language support
  • Provide you with practical information such as opening a bank account, finalizing migration status, transferring to or initiating an academic program, signing up for a GP visit
  • Share tips on what to do in the host country/city
  • Be a trustworthy conversation partner

 

PLEASE NOTE: Currently, this program is only available to those with Ukrainian citizenship and nationals of other countries who were forced to flee the country due to military action. However, in the near future we are planning to make the program available to anyone who might need a Buddy in a foreign city/country.
