Youth and Family Programs

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.
