Our mission is to influence deep social processes in the Ukrainian society by creating future leaders. We want to bring together young people with high leadership potential and give them the best training, development instruments, in-depth understanding of their national identity, desire to be of use to their nation, perception and realization of their talents.
The Academy was founded and it operates with the support from Western NIS Enterprise Fund, an investment fund established by the U.S. Government via the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). For the entire duration of academic program, the Fund pays scholarship to ULA students and provides support to the Academy.

Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) is the first regional direct investment fund in Ukraine. For over 20 years, WNISEF has been financing innovative, highly-effective programs aimed at implementation of reforms and changing life of ordinary people in Ukraine and Moldova. The Fund provides support to dozens of socially-important projects in Ukraine, ranging from Prozorro electronic public procurements system to CANactions School of Urban Studies. Western NIS Enterprise Fund President and CEO Jaroslawa Johnson is a member of ULA’s initiative group and teaches English literature at the Academy.

The Academy operates with the support from the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the Ministry of Youth and Sport of Ukraine. Thanks to the initiative of Viktor and Iryna Ivanchyk and Astarta-Kyiv, the Ukrainian Leadership Academy has opened a branch in Poltava. With the support from Borys Lozhkin, ULA’s Kharkiv branch has received accommodation. Data Group provides Internet access service to all branches of the Academy. At the same time, we work with bodies of local self-government, private initiatives and foundations (Dialogues, Believe in Yourself Foundation).
We are grateful to the parents of our students, our relatives, lecturers, suppliers and all friends for their trust and support!
