Youth and Family Programs

The American Swedish Institute's Youth and Family Programming is extensive, varied, fun and welcoming to kids of all skill levels and backgrounds (and their grown-ups). ASI's eclectic range of creative activities and offerings includes: the Turnblad Mansion's Third Floor Family Gallery with rotating installations and an interactive play area; our regular Family Days and Kids at the Castle events; Youth Slöjd (Craft) Workshops; and our extended school year class sessions such as Svenska Skolan, which mixes Swedish language with music and games for kids ages 4 to 13, and På Gång, a Sunday afternoon Swedish class/social club for teens.

We encourage young people to explore their creative side through play, craft and language learning. Kids can express themselves, expand their imagination and develop a sense of innovation and experimentation through open-ended creativity.  Hands-on, interactive activities can build life-long skills and open up alternative perspectives of the world.
