Saavittut Program

The Saavittut Program will take place between July 3-5, 2020 in St.John’s, Newfoundland.


The 2020 Arctic Expedition Saavittut program is a 2-day program for Inuit youth to connect with fellow Inuit students and staff from across Inuit Nunangat and Greenland.

In Inuktitut, Saavittut means “taking off from the shore”, and this program will engage staff and students in connecting with one another and to learn about themselves so they can share what they know about their culture and homeland with youth participants from all over the world.
