Jail Brake calls for Service Designers!


We’re looking for service designers to join us for the Jailbrake weekend, 26th-28th March, at the Young Foundation in Bethnal Green, London.

Jailbrake is a competition to find and support great ideas that could break the cycle of youth offending using simple web and mobile tools.

From our call for ideas back in January and February, we’ve chosen six early-stage ideas we’re going to be helping to turn into real projects in just one weekend from 6.30pm, Friday 26th March to 4pm, Sunday 28th March.

So now we’re looking for people who want to join us for the weekend and help build them.

Are you a great software developer or designer? Do you have have service design, business, legal or other expertise that could be needed to get an idea off the ground?

Want to come and help build one of these ideas?

We’re looking for all sorts of talented people to get involved and come for the Jailbrake weekend: right through from people who have first hand experience of working with young people and the youth justice system, to those who can hack together some software and people who can work out how to sustain an idea in the long-run.

You can come along for all or part of the weekend and get involved in one particular idea or help out several different projects – just let us know when you’d like to come and how you can help by signing up here.

Here’s when and where:

6.30pm, Friday 26th March – 4pm, Sunday 28th March 2010

The Young Foundation
17-18 Victoria Park Square
Bethnal Green
E2 9PF

Hope you can make it!”
Once again….this is set to be a brilliant couple of days and it is a great opportunity to put your talent, skills and knowledge to a worthwhile project! The design students who joined us last week had a fanatastic experience and have since been offered internships and invaluable contacts! Go go go!
