The Career Passport #Ukraine will launch in August, with initial credential pathways in:
- Social Media Marketing
- Full Stack Software Developer
- IT Support Professional
GG4L will deploy an online infrastructure for secure enrollment and access to the third-party digital content and courses for this program. The primary partner for courseware and pathways is Coursera, providing industry recognized courses and certificates through their Career Academy from leading vendors such as Google, Amazon, IBM and many others.
“The GG4L Career Passport program will allow our high school students to prepare themselves for in-demand jobs,” said Petro Korzhevsky, Head of Rivne State Department of Education. “The online program, supplemented with advisors drawn from our teaching ranks enables students to gain work-ready skills during a time of deep disruption in our country.”
“We’ve all been deeply saddened and concerned with the war in Ukraine,” commented Robert Iskander, GG4L’s Founder and CEO. “As a major employer in Ukraine, we were eager to provide meaningful support to the country. Career Passport #Ukraine will give high school students a path toward employment in the IT industry.”
GG4L is planning to enlist corporate sponsors to assist in financially sustaining this impact initiative as it expands to thousands of Ukrainian refugees and displaced youth. In addition to corporate sponsors, GG4L is enlisting employers who will hire the certified students for entry level employment or consulting positions.
