Meet a family of five from Ukraine.

They recently arrived in the US through Alight’s Jobs Sponsorship program that ensures job placements for newcomers upon arrival.

Iryna, who formerly ran a training center in Kyiv, is set to start a new role as an Associate Teacher at Bright Horizons, Boston. As she recounts:

“Alight generously assisted us with travel arrangements, employment, housing, documentation, and all other aspects of our move. After a successful interview with Bright Horizons, I was thrilled to receive a job offer from this esteemed company. Working with children has always been a source of joy for me, and I eagerly anticipate my first day on the job.”

Their journey hasn’t been easy, and the family is ready for a fresh start in Boston and grateful for the support they got, says Iryna.

“Since the war’s onset in Ukraine, our family has relocated nine times. The constant change has taken a toll on all of us, especially the children. We remain hopeful that America will serve as our second home, a place where we can build lasting friendships, establish our household, and lead a fulfilling life. We extend our heartfelt thanks to both Alight and Bright Horizons for their unwavering help and encouragement.”
