Linux Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) will partner with Razom for Ukraine on Razom’s Project Veteranius to provide access to technology education for Ukrainian veterans, their families, and Ukrainians in need. Leveraging its expertise in IT Training programs, Linux Foundation will help Razom make three of LF’s training courses accessible to Ukrainians through translations and help solidify partnerships with other IT-focused organizations that will make courses scalable to large student populations.
Razom, which means “together” in Ukrainian, believes deeply in the enormous potential of dedicated volunteers around the world united by a single goal: to unlock the potential of Ukraine. Razom works towards that mission by creating spaces where people meet, partner, and do.
One of the projects Razom has built is Veteranius, which aims to help Ukrainian veterans secure their first job in IT. The training program offered by Razom is a mixture of technical skillset development, hands-on projects, mentorship opportunities, and psychological support.
“We are thrilled to partner with Razom for Ukraine to enable free and open educational opportunities for Ukrainian veterans, their family members, and other people affected by the war,” said Ihor Dvoretskyi, Senior Developer Advocate at Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “This program is a wonderful opportunity for current and prospective veterans of the Ukrainian Army, as well as their relatives, looking to start a career in technology.”
“Razom is very grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Linux Foundation on this initiative! These classes on the topics of Linux, Kubernetes, and Git will enable the Veteranius team to expand the scope of the existing training program and allow an opportunity to explore a more broad set of IT positions,” said Dora Chomiak, President, Razom.
Linux Foundation courses that will be translated into Ukrainian and offered to Project Veteranius will be:
