Duo family training is for intercultural couples who have just become parents or are expecting a baby. The training consists of three optional parts:
• Face-to-face family meeting (in Helsinki) and/or
• Bilingualism workshop (in Helsinki) and/or
• Self-study material (online course)
The main purpose of the Face-to-face meeting is to get to know other intercultural couples in the same life situation and to share thoughts and experiences about intercultural family life and parenthood. In the Bilingualism workshop parents will get information about bilingualism and practical ideas for raising children in different multilingual situations. The training is in English and free of charge. Please note. The training complements the training offered by “neuvola”, but does not replace it. It does not include for example birth training or information about how to take care of a newborn baby.
• Face-to-face family meeting Thursday 25.1. (17.00–19.00) or Thursday 19.4. (17.00–19.00)

Do you and your family have closets full of clothes you don’t use? Would you like to find some new ones? At Familia Clothes Swap Day you have an amazing opportunity to get rid of women's, men’s, and children's clothes and shoes in good condition and get new ones in return! That means no money is needed except to buy the coffee, tea, and baked goods sold at the event.
You can bring the clothes and shoes you want to swap to the office beforehand, in the morning or during the event. You can also participate in preparing the baked goods to be sold the previous day!
You get to hear about Familia's fall activities during the event as well!
A warm welcome to all!
