It helps participants acquire new knowledge and skills necessary for successful integration into civilian life and professional activities. The goal of the program is to provide veterans with high-quality education that combines theoretical knowledge with practical training. ¬†Over the past four months, program participants have been gaining technical skills and knowledge that will help them contribute to defending Ukraine’s digital infrastructure in the future.

During the event, participants also had the opportunity to take a tour of the stadium. They learned about the club’s history at the Dynamo Stadium Museum, walked through the players’ tunnel, viewed the stadium bowl, visited the fan office and explored the gaming zone. This tour provided participants with even more inspiration and highlighted the importance of a team spirit and a history in sports life.
