The Bail Out event is designed to offer members of the community a unique experience into the lives of at-risk youth. It is both an immersive and educational night, with many elements and activities involved.
Participants are stripped of their possessions on arrival, given a prison uniform, fingerprinted, photographed and taken to the exercise yard to be fed prison gruel. Participants will also be subjected to a mock interrogation and court proceedings before being sentenced to cell time.
Once you register, you commit to raising $1,000 to ensure your bail on Bail Out night. All the funds raised in the lead-up to Bail Out will be donated to Whitelion, who provide services to highly vulnerable, high risk young people between 14-24 years old. These are people who are impacted by the justice system, out of home care, homelessness, complex and chronic disadvantage. Whitelion exists to build positive connections and pathways to work for these young people at risk.
