To whom the conference might be interesting?

  • for those who find an American experience to be the powerful resource for building changes in Ukraine
  • for those who is studying or have ever studied in the USA and finds the value of education not in knowledge, but in action

  • Because every year hundreds of Ukrainian students are coming to study at the USA, get here valuable education, develop amazing ideas and projects, but act alone
  • Because the powerful Ukrainian Diaspora exists in the USA, but only a few people know about its projects and initiatives
  • Because uniting efforts of Ukrainian students in USA and Ukrainian Diaspora we can learn from each other and together in a synergy create changes in Ukraine.
