We’re well on the way to start trying out our loops of experiences this summer! And we’re calling it LOOPS. We’re also rapidly growing the LOOPS team of four to about 20 people for a while. Young people are joining our team as catalysts and experience agents. Catalysts will work with local organisations and businesses to create new experiences for young people, whereas agents will evaluate the quality of the experiences and give us feedback.
LOOPS will be up and running at small scale in July and August with about 20 young people and 5 families, in Brighton and Croydon. In this way we hope to learn how to make it work for real. And how to make it better!
