Home » Programs » Ridna Shkola Initiative

From its very foundation, the Ukrainian National Federation of Canada has been involved in establishing various affiliated organizations and programs. Among these are schools teaching Ukrainian language and history, known as Ridni shkoly, and they have a special place in the Ukrainian Community.

Traditionally offering lessons on Saturdays, over time the teaching curriculum in these schools has expanded from Ukrainian language and literature to courses in Ukrainian history, geography, religion as well as studies about the Ukrainian culture. Children have an opportunity to sing in a choir and learn to play the bandura, while some schools encourage the growth of talented youth in an artistic direction through additional enrichments. To date, a number of these schools give students in grades 9 through 11 an opportunity to earn 1 high school credit per school year.
