Who we are


Fryshuset is a dynamic and multifaceted movement for young people’s development. We enable young people to change the world through their passions.

We are a non profit organization independent of any political ideology or religion. We promote empowerment and social inclusion of youth with a special focus on those who are at risk or already face exclusion.

We create opportunities for young people to develop their innate abilities and skills, fulfill their dreams and discover their passion in order to help them realize their full potential and find their way into society. We believe that everybody can succeed and are worth to be given a chance to make a new beginning.

We are bridge builders for mutual understanding and respect between young people, authorities, decision makers and other individuals.

We work to strengthen young people’s knowledge about society and different cultures. We promote and support democratic values, knowledge and skills in order to increase young people’s active participation in democratic processes.

We strive to achieve this by jointly with young people create environments for holistic learning and personal development. We value and recognize young people’s voices, ideas and actions. We are convinced that it contributes to a creative and solution-oriented social climate in which it’s allowed to think differently and find innovative solutions.

Fryshuset has branches in Hammarby Sjöstad, Husby and Skärholmen, Gothenburg, Malmö, Öland, Borlänge, Sweden.

We also cooperate closely with numerous youth and civil organizations, governmental agencies, social enterprises and research centers in The Netherlands, Oslo, Norway, USA, Finland, Brazil, France, Kenya, Senegal and South Africa.

Fryshuset’s operations are funded through grants from foundations and funds, school fees, and sales of services. We also receive municipal grants from several of the cities we operate in as well as financial support from generous companies and dedicated private individuals.

All of Fryshuset operations are based on the same values, mission and methods, but are locally adapted to the conditions, needs of young people and their driving force.
