Wellcome to Friends Program 2020!

Do you want to get to know Finnish people and culture? Do you want to get new friends in Finland? If you said yes, Friends Program would be perfect for you! The program is for degree students and Finnish, singles or families, to join.

The aim is to bring people together, because friendship is precious. Life is better with friends! With a friend, life is lighter and more fun! With a Finnish friend, you will have an access to Finnish lifestyle, culture and get inside to Finland and Finnish mindset.

What is Friends Program all about?

You and your Finnish friend will decide, what kind of activities you will have together. Activities can be for example coffee together, going to nature, going to museums, doing sports, cooking, going out, watching movies, and so on. The Program organizes activities also together, for example visits some interesting events and places in Helsinki!

The Program is voluntary. It is free of charge, but everyone pays his/hers own expenses, like bus tickets, entrance fees and so on. If the corona crisis goes on and we can not meet face to face, the Program is going online. We are trying our best to make match/triplets for everyone, but we can not guarantee that. It depends how many participants we get and what their interests are.

The Program starts in November 2020. Dead line to enrollment is at the end of October. This Program is for finding new friends. This Program is not meant to looking for a romantical date.

The Program is organized by university chaplains Kaisa Iso-Herttua (Haaga-Helia UAS) and Tiina Kaaresvirta (Metropolia UAS). Information about what`s happening is found at Facebook: Friends Program. Please like the page!
