Youth and Family Programs

Online Resources

Has an American Swedish Institute Youth & Family program inspired curiosity about Swedish or Nordic culture? ASI wants to nurture your child's curiosity and sense of adventure through our online resources lists. ASI has curated lists of books, activities, crafts and more for you and your family to learn more about Sweden from the comfort of your own home. We encourage you to gather as a family to share experiences around these themes informed by enduring links to Sweden.

Youth & Family Programs at ASI

ASI's Youth and Family Programming is fun and welcoming to kids and their grown-ups. ASI encourages all young people to explore their world through play, craft, and language learning. Find places to expand your imagination, like the interactive Family Gallery, or attend a monthly drop-in program like Kids at the Castle designed especially for early childhood. For those interested in Scandinavian culture and Swedish language, try one of the youth language courses for kids ages 4-18. 

"I love a lot of things about the American Swedish Institute. The building and mansion are beautiful, the garden is gorgeous. As the mom of two toddlers - I'm amazed by the play space for kids and the preschool programming. They have Kids at the Castle events, along with special classes you can enroll in. The classes are organized and entertaining. My kids love them." - Kelsey N. on Yelp, 2020
