In recent years, rapid changes in the society have led to changes in family structures; consequently, the number of single families, cross-generation families and inter-racial marriages has increased, but the role of traditional family has been diminished. Family Education Law of the ROC has clearly stated that the Law is enacted “for the furtherance of national knowledge and capabilities in respect of family life, the advancement of national physical and mental well-being, the fostering of happy families, and the establishment of a harmonious society”; hence, the Family Education Center of Chiayi City works to enhance the knowledge and capabilities of the public for family education and to promote family education. The Center teaches the public what they need to know for a harmonious family life, including relevant knowledge, feelings and skills and we organize activities and lectures to show our citizens how to solve various family and social problems effectively.
Located in Family Education Hall next to Chiayi Park, the Center has its own office and space for activities, which is divided into three parts:
1F: activity room, reading room, audio/visual room.
2F: office, consultation room, volunteers’ lounge, fitness room (group activity room)
3F: conference room and classrooms
