I found out about Ukrainian Social Academy and this Program from Facebook network. The announced topics were of special interest to me, so I decided that I should improve my project attending this Program. In general, thanks to this School I have got a possibility to put all dots over the letters ‘i'. All the organizers and participants changed my lifestyle and attitude to professional job. So, I would like to advise the future participants: Do not be afraid of starting something new, be open to experience diversity in your life. Then you will recognize of how you can change your life and life of the whole society.
There are extraordinary people who are ready to help in all the endeavors of youth, this project is a chance that can not be forgotten, meetings, trainings, new acquaintances, work in groups is all that will enable the development and systematization of already acquired knowledge. And to try ourselves in public sphere, to feel truly one of the mechanisms of change in the state. It all is Ukrainian Social Academy
Participation in such programs, first of all, broadens the outlook and holds in tone. New acquaintances, communication with professionals in their field inspire each other to work on themselves. In fact, such programs are the bridge and the opportunity to get the most information and experience and apply it in different practical professional fields.

Thanks to the organizers who invited me to this magic world, Thanks to my loving team and that we have each other :) Together we act and move on further :)
I am sincerely glad to know everyone whom I met in the School from spring to summer :) Having such an arsenal of kindness, goodwill and the desire to build, to create at all times. We all, our country have the hope of development, flowering and positioning itself as a worthy member of the society of the World!

Now I am a certified social engineer! These sleepless Saturday mornings are not in vain: useful knowledge, new acquaintances and the ocean of positive emotions! Happy without limits! Thanks to each teacher and colleague for two and a half months of active and fruitful cooperation! Thanks to the team of the Ukrainian Social Academy! We will not stop on this chapter, we will continue working together!
We are getting new knowledge and reaching our goals step by step in a team work. During this School we open ourselves, discover our potential and experience each other. In such an atmosphere, you understand the project management better. What I have learned is that I should not be a stable ‘locomotive’, but all my team should reach the necessary speed and move with inertia. This program offers all the instruments to achieve such a result. Just want to thank you again!
During the period of training our project has taken shape in the vision of our idea, an understanding of the amount of work and research that is ahead in building the team.
When we came to study, we did not have anything, but the Ukrainian Social Academy taught us how to implement the dream, which tools should be used to turn the idea into a successful social project, to leave the comfort zone and think creatively, not to be afraid of difficulties or to be mistaken.
