Mission Possible was created in 2002 in Paris by Claude Beau, then a Juvenile Court Judge. Its action is based on a simple principle : helping the most at-risk, underprivileged children with the difficulties they face today is the best way to prevent possible antisocial or self-destructive behaviour tomorrow. A comprehensive, everyday educative programme set up by an experienced and skilled team of educators and psychologists is the most coherent way to give structure and learning experiences to those children who are most deprived of them. And this action is targeted at 6-to-12 year-olds, it is vital to take action before the problems faced by at-risk youth have escalated to the point of no return.

Stockholm-based Fryshuset is more than just a house. It is a vision based on the belief that humanity and justice can only be achieved through commitment, encouragement, self-esteem and enthusiasm gained from real life encounters and experiences. Fryshuset is packed with activities and people from all sectors of society. Young people mix with grown-ups in order to participate, contribute and learn. Fryshuset offers the chance to meet and share passionate interests, as well as engage in social commitment, sports, entertainment, culture and innovative educational programs. Fryshuset has something for everybody.

Drawing from Fryshuset’s experience and vitality  and from Mission Possible’s  expertise on this age group, a new structure is being set up in Stockholm for 9-to-13 year-olds.

Project IPACY wishes to gather such initiatives to build networks, identify good practices and help early prevention structures to flourish in all European countries.
