Monday, July 23, 2018 - 15:00

USAID’s RADA Program together with the NGO “Interns’ League” held the Closing Ceremony of the Parliamentary Internship Program 2018 on July 20. The Program provided an opportunity for professional development, first-hand experience, and engagement in the legislative process for 54 graduates, who successfully completed the six-month Parliamentary Internship Program. USAID Deputy Mission Director for Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus John Pennel, First Deputy Head of the Secretariat of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Petro Bodnar and other distinguished guests congratulated graduates. This 23 year of the Program implementation was a remarkable one: for the first time the Program, which was for 22 years supported by USAID, was fully administered and funded by the Verkhovna Rada Secretariat.
