Job opportunity – NEW



The Ukrainian Association of N. Carolina is engaged in many activities. In this section we will periodically inform about specific activities and opportunities and invite interested persons to participate in their planning and implementation.

Announcement 1 (2/22/19):

The Ukrainian Easter egg, pysanka, is one of the most known and admired products of Ukrainian culture. The Ukrainian Association of North Carolina has been conducting pysanka workshops in libraries, at international festivals and schools with great success. We are receiving more requests than we can handle and could use some help. If you know how to make pysanky and would like to help with these workshops, please contact Donna Goldstein at: (919) 942-4082, ds.goldstein@mindspring.com. This is a very rewarding experience and an excellent opportunity to share this beautiful example of Ukrainian culture with others in the community.


Carolina Navigators Program Includes Ukrainian cultural kits

Carolina Navigators is a service-learning program at the Center for Global Initiatives at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC CH). The program provides free global education resources to educators and students from across North Carolina. Carolina Navigators welcomes NC educators and students to explore its digital resources and will ship culture kits, free of charge, to any educator in North Carolina.

The association member, Maryna Kapustina, worked in partnership with Carolina Navigators program to create two Ukrainian cultural kits that will facilitate and support learning about Ukrainian culture and history. The creation of these kits was only possible with generous donation of Ukrainian items from Association members and our friends from Ukraine including: Anna Solyanyk, Мария Ясинская and Kiev Gymnasium of Oriental Languages number 1.

If your child is interested in expanding their knowledge about Ukraine, please, encourage them to ask their teacher to request the Ukrainian kit from this program. These kits are designed to support a teaching unit or an individual student project on Ukraine.
