Ukrainian Leadership Academy

The Ukrainian Leadership Academy is a 10-month program of personal and collective development for secondary school graduates built on combination of physical, psychological, and intellectual development and based on the values. The aim of the Academy is to unite young people with high potential for leadership, and provide them with the best training and world practices, help them to discover a deep understanding of national identity, reveal their true talent, and encourage them to become agents of change for the benefit of our country. The Academy was founded in 2015 with support of Ukraine-Moldova American Enterprise Fund. The project is supported by the Presidential Administration of Ukraine, the Parliament Committee on Education and Science, and the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
International Mayors Summit

International Mayors Summit

International Mayors Summit (IMS), launched in 2016 as a knowledge exchange platform for local government leaders, became “more than a conference”, a place where projects and partnerships are born. The annual Summit brings together prominent mayors from throughout the world, the business community, international organizations representatives and civil society to discuss solutions, innovations, best practices and common challenges in all areas of city life. The Summit is organized by Western NIS Enterprise Fund and supported by the Prime Minister of Ukraine. Mayors and experts from the USA, Canada, the Netherlands, UK, UAE, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, and Germany took part at the International Mayors Summit. The Summit’s format allows participants to get knowledge and build a strong international network with prominent global leaders of urban transformation, be part of professional speed-networking sessions, test various solutions at the location, sign memorandums and launch special projects.

We believe that these funds will be the catalyst that will expedite the transformative process and cement its results for the longer term – until ordinary people feel a tangible impact on their lives and join the ranks of reformers.
