Overview - Bail Out 2021

An evening full of moving stories, inspirational people, eye-opening facts and unforgettable experiences – 
Bail Out is an event not to miss!

2021 is Whitelion’s final Bail Out event! 

Bail Out- The Finale promises to take participants out of their comfort zone and will challenge general misconceptions around highly vulnerable, high risk youth and their over-representation in the justice system.

Whitelion invites the community to taste the reality of the incarceration of young people, and processes that can take place to prevent extreme outcomes such as entering the youth justice system. Jail (Custodial Sentence) is one of the worst consequences for young people at risk in Australia.

To assist the audience in greater understanding the issue, the Bail Out experience will been constructed against the compelling backdrop of YASMAR Juvenile Detention Centre which sets the sobering scene.

This event will offer participants an immersive example of what is sadly a real life experience for many young people at risk, while also paying homage to this legacy event through a retrospective look at the event over the past fifteen years.

The event is free to register to attend. In the lead up to the campaign, registered participants will commit to raising $1,000 'bail', to ensure their participation and release on the night. This can be raised individually or in teams with all funds raised going directly into delivering Whitelion's programs over the next year.

Whitelion supports registered participants on a fundraising journey to reach a Bail Out amount of $1000.

An all immersive experience designed to open your eyes to some of the struggles faced by young people going through the Youth Justice System, you’ll be subject to firsthand what life on the inside can be like.
