The program is intended for young, unemployed adults with the aim to enhance their career prospects and develop various skills needed for their future jobs. This ESP program is delivered online via the learning platform Canvas. As for the English Access Microscholarship Program, the author will present the program and talk about the pedagogical background of this learning-by-doing, project-based and inquiry-based program, the infusion of the 21st century skills into traditional learning, and other benefits for our students. The Regional English Language Office and the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade support these programs, and the author intends to talk about the benefits of the U.S. government-sponsored programs in Serbia.
