What is OSVITA?
OSVITA is a Ukrainian cultural immersion summer program for high school students, located on Edmonton’s vibrant Whyte Avenue, and operated by St. John’s Institute (SJI). During OSVITA, students reside at SJI and experience complete immersion into Ukrainian culture.
Since 1979, OSVITA has been a destination for youth wanting to learn Ukrainian language and about Ukrainian culture in an exciting and interactive environment. Over the past three decades, OSVITA has delivered quality cultural programming and excursions, and that tradition continues today with the added twist of more adventure! OSVITA is the most unique Ukrainian cultural summer experience in Canada!
If you want to meet new people from across Canada, and have a summer jam-packed with Ukrainian culture, Alberta adventure, tons of fun, and new experiences, then OSVITA is for you!
