Interested in learning more about the Finnish way of life? Participate in the Friendship programme!
The Friendship Programme offers the international visitors (students, teachers, researchers) and local families a chance for mutual cultural exchange and unforgettable experiences.
With a friend from the local community it is possible to learn more about Finnish culture and everyday life. All activities within the Friendship Programme are voluntary. It is up to the international visitor and his/her friend to decide what they want to do together and how often they meet.
The participants of the programme are ordinary Finnish persons and families living in Åbo/Turku or the neighbouring area. The friends can be of different ages ranging from students to retired people.
