Friends and mentorship
Moulticultural Friendship program
Would you like to connect with Finnish individuals and engage in activities which interest you together? The multicultural friendship program is available for those aged 18-29.
Young adult groups
We organize groups where we spend time together, get to know each other, and engage in various activities based on the participants’ own preferences. Previous groups have included activities such as cooking together, board game gatherings, theater group, excursion group, and project group. The groups are intended for young adults aged 18-29, both Finns as well as those who have come alone to the country.
For more information, contact Kaisa via phone/WhatsApp 050 544 0043 or email at
If you are a young person who has arrived alone to the country, you can connect with a Finnish family which can act as your support group. With your ‘support family,’ you can spend time together and learn more about Finnish culture, engaging in everyday activities together, having dinner, participating in hobbies, going outdoors, and staying in touch.
For more information, contact Funlayo via phone/WhatsApp at 050 544 0079 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual digital guidance by appointment
Book an appointment and come to practice handling your affairs independently on the internet. Together, we will practice using the specific services you need, such as healthcare services, employment services (TE-palvelut), Kela services (Social Insurance Institution of Finland), Migri services (Finnish Immigration Service), and banking services.
In these groups, we practice using various services (Kela, banks, etc.) through the internet. We organize beginner and advanced level groups.
Open digital meetings
Come to seek assistance or help others with challenges related to devices or digital services. You can receive guidance without an appointment!
To book an appointment or for more information, you can contact Emmanuel Sibomana via email at email@example.com.

The categories feature swimming beaches, indoor sports facilities, outdoor sports facilities, museums, libraries, youth spaces, playgrounds, religious communities, as well as art and music venues in the Jyväskylä area.
