WE LOVE NUNAVUT!

Meet the staff leading exciting new projects in Iqaluit, Nunavut and watch a fun video about reading in the summertime made by the kids and counsellors at the Taloyoak Summer Literacy Camp.
 
We are excited to announce that Frontier College is now working year-round in Nunavut. Our new staff members Rachel Michael and Nigel Qaumariaq are working in Iqaluit in collaboration with illinniapaa campus, a facility where people of all abilities can receive individualized assessment and training for employment success.

Rachel, our literacy outreach worker, is setting up programs and partnerships that are aimed at helping youth improve their literacy skills and school success rates. Nigel is an instructor-coordinator in workplace literacy and essential skills, collaborating with employers in the region to help their apprentices acquire the literacy skills needed to become successful trades people.

This past summer, we ran Summer Literacy Camps in Nunavut, including the fly-in community of Taloyoak. The kids at the Taloyoak camp wrote lyrics to a song promoting reading for fun—and then made a video of it also featuring their awesome dance moves!

To keep up-to-date with our work and activities in Nunavut, please like our Facebook page.
And in case you were wondering, ilinniapaa is pronounced il-i-knee-a-pa and means "strive to learn" or "Hey! I'm learning!" in Inuktitut.
