Program Title: “English Language Program for Combat Veterans of Ukraine”



“English Language Program for Combat Veterans of Ukraine” is on its second year of execution and continues to see an increase in program participants. Established in September 2019, it aims to improve participant communication skills and English language knowledge in order to facilitate successful transition to civilian careers. These new abilities are beneficial for everyday use as well as a valuable addition for resume building and employment applications. 


Moreover, these qualifications increase participant value to potential veteran employers in the local job market. This program creates a positive motivation for achievement in a veteran’s new phase in life as well as assisting combat veterans working through PTSD and other disabilities.


This year the program consists of 35 combat veteran and family member participants; nine of them are disabled and one is blind. We divided participants into two groups according to their prior English language knowledge. Each lesson is designed to provide differentiated learning for each specific participant in order to accelerate the learning process as much as possible. 





Another important program for combat veterans under development:



“Basic Computer Skills for Combat Veterans and Families of Ukraine”

These new abilities are beneficial for everyday use as well as a valuable addition for resume building and to facilitate second careers in an office setting. Disabled veterans benefit substantially by acquiring these critical skills to excel in a civilian setting.




Moreover, these qualifications increase participant value to potential veteran employers in the local job market. This program creates a positive motivation for achievement in a veteran’s new phase in life as well as assisting combat veterans working through PTSD and other disabilities.
