Civil confirmation course for the first time available online, in English!
Siðmennt's civil confirmation program aims to empower young people and prepare them for their future. Next semester we will have one of our online courses in English, starting in January. The courses is taught every other Sunday from 15th of January from 11:00-12:50 GMT+0.
The courses are set to strengthen their self-image, encourage them to be open-minded and support the growth of a constructive mindset. The confirmation program consists of humanistic subjects that best suit the maturity level of teenagers, tailored to current events relevant to the teenager’s interests. The curriculum captures these subjects holistically through four phases portrayed as pillars, and guides the confirmands through the questions that arise during the classes.
After having taken the classes, the young adults celebrate their accomplishments with a grand ceremony. You can either choose a group ceremony or a personal one, where one of Siðmennt's celebrants gives a ceremony in the confirmands private home or party. Click here to see dates of ceremonies.
The confirmation is open to all teenagers – without regards to their country of origin, gender, sexuality, religion or other life philosophies. Neither the teenagers nor their parents or guardians are required to be members of Siðmennt. The age reference is 13-15 years old and the traditional confirmation age in Iceland is on their 14th year (in 8th grade).
