Ukrainian Community Center

Host organization

Ukrainian Center was founded by the Ukrainian Association in Finland in April 2022. Our aim is to unite Ukrainians around common values, to provide a safe space and friendly environment for Ukrainians to support their well-being and smooth integration into Finnish society, to share knowledge about Ukraine and to strengthen Ukrainian-Finnish cultural and people ties. We organize various activities for the Ukrainian community in Finland, including educational classes, integrational webinars and seminars, cultural events, wellbeing and hobby clubs for adults and children.

The project start is flexible between mid-August and beginning of September and the length can vary between 6-12 months.
