A local high school student has developed a digital website to help Ukrainians find remote employment possibilities.
Brookline resident Jack Botein thinks that his effort would alleviate economic uncertainties for individuals escaping violence in the war-torn country.
“I, like many other people, was hearing about the really terrible stuff that was happening in Ukraine. Specifically, how 11 million people have had to flee their homes.”Jack Botein, Founder, Ukraine Digital Design
Ukraine Digital Design was launched by the 16-year-old, who has already connected a few Ukrainian designers with clients in the United States.
“Right now, I’m cold emailing designers on Instagram and Facebook. I’m looking over their portfolios, making sure they can do what they promised.Jack Botein, Founder, Ukraine Digital Design
One of the designers Botein has assisted in finding employment says she is juggling two projects while trying to make ends meet.
Botein also invited others to join him in making a good difference in the lives of Ukrainians affected by the Russian invasion.
Many Ukrainian employees working remotely in various companies have also had the support of their current employers in all ways possible.
