About us

Fristaden r.f. is a non-profit registered organization that has been active since May 2020. Our goal is to one day open the doors to a place for children and young people to gather and socialize in a caring and safe environment with their friends.

Our mission is to provide a space where young people can thrive and develop their skills and interests, while fostering a sense of community and belonging.

We work to create a positive existence in young people's lives and promote their well-being.

At Fristaden r.f., we believe in the power of young people and the importance of creating a supportive and inclusive environment so that their personality can grow and flourish into safe individuals.

This is our vision...

When our children say they miss the same thing we once dreamed of. And when we discover that many of our young people in today's society are not allowed to take a seat and there is a need to be both seen and heard! The statistical figures show a frightening trend about mental illness among children and young people, and it is one of our goals to change the negative spiral and try to raise hope among children and young people again! 

  • There must be a place where they can get together and just be themselves with their friends in a safe environment. 
  • There must be a place where you can be seen and heard! 
  • There must be a place where you can dream about your future plans and a place where you can get advice and support in realizing them! 

Support Fristaden and our work!


We are working towards kids and youth having a safe and stable future in Jakobstad. Our organisation will provide with a youth center in the center of Jakobstad. Where in the mornings it will be open for stay at home mothers and fathers where they can meet over a cup of coffee meanwhile the kids will have access to educational playtime. In the early afternoon kids who does not have an after school practise will be able to attend the facility. And in the evenings it will accommodate teenagers and youth up to 18 years of age.  With games, movie nights or just a place to hang out in a safe environment.

Once a month we have a scheduled meeting where we go thru our statistics and progress from our different platforms. 

Our present goal is to open the doors of our premises. To gather as much members as we can and to soon find members who finds the joy to be a part of our organisation and to help develop the basics and purpose of Fristaden.  To create different events where we can activate kids to a healthy practise on their freetime like event nights in the  youth center, local road trips, visits to prehistoric places in Finland, different shows and entertainment during the weekends.

Fristaden organisation is completely dependent on subsidy from members and other companies. We accept donations, testaments, sponsors, from different foundations and organisations. 

Everything Fristaden gets goes straight to out our work toward getting the space for the youth to develop into safe young adults.
