Collaborating to Assist Ukrainian Veterans

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is cooperating with the Warsaw Enterprise Institute (WEI) to assist Ukrainian military veterans in acquiring necessary professional and social competencies needed to return to civilian life. WEI is leveraging Dixon Center’s influence, ideas and actions to implement a strategy emphasizing grassroot solutions that are working and those that are focusing on meaningful employment for those touched by military service.WEI is developing the Ukrainian Veterans Academy Personal Development Program. The project’s aims are:

  • The acquired competences and qualifications should be useful for finding oneself on the labor market, return to the previous employment or starting own business.
  • Participation in the Ukrainian Veterans Academy training program will be completely free of charge for Ukrainian soldiers leaving service.
  • The training courses will be closed, with access for verified participants only.
  • The trainees will be able to refresh existing skills, acquire new ones as needed and benefit from the knowledge and experience of local and foreign experts.
  • The program will start in mid-2023 and run until the end of 2024

The program will be implemented by the WEI, a think-tank of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers (UEE), one of the largest organization of employers in Poland. Program partners will be: Ministry of Veterans Affairs of Ukraine and Come Back Alive, a Ukrainian fund supporting the military effort of the Ukrainian army. Also, the program will be under the honorary patronage of the National Security Office of the Republic of Poland.
