Young Generation will Change Ukraine

A program for young patriotic Ukrainians, who play an active part in the public life of the country, willing to be the driving force of fundamental changes in Ukraine with regard to the European experience.

The participants and alumni of the ‘Young Generation Will Change Ukraine’ program established the association which consists of more than 1500 young people who work in Verkhovna Rada, ministries, city councils and administrations, manage grand-scale social projects or develop their own businesses.

‘We started with dream of what our country is supposed to be. Its natural and human potential is huge and the current state is very bad.
The dream turned into a plan. In 2012 ‘Young Generation Will Change Ukraine’ program was launched to help the country go through a process of transformation and become an effective country.  It works over my expectations. I am very proud of Program participants. I have learned a lot from them, communicating with them and reading their articles’, Bohdan Hawrylyshyn.



The program contains 3 stages: training in local development schools, project implementation by program participants, and study of the European experience or the small grant.

During 2020 and 2021, the program “Young Generation will Change Ukraine” was implemented at the local level in the Poltava region. Training was aimed at young patriotic residents of Poltava region who are active in the public life of the region and ready to be the driving force of effective change. In 2021, for the first time, the residents of Poltava region had the opportunity to vote for three settlements to become local development schools.

During two years, 60 participants successfully finished the program, and 95% of them mentioned that they improved their skills in project management.
