Spark Inside, a charity supporting young people in custody to stay out of crime, is seeking help from a talented economist to calculate the financial savings from diverting one young offender away from crime.

This is very important work. There is currently no model for how much money is saved by taxpayers for every young person who was in prison who is then diverted from the criminal justice system. The results will be tremendously valuable to the entire youth justice sector, the Ministry of Justice and Youth Justice Board, and to all charities and social businesses operating in the field.

This will likely be a complicated model (forecasts over time, multiple variables), and applicants should be very comfortable with econometric modeling. Familiarity with the criminal justice system is helpful but not necessary; Spark Inside's staff will support the volunteer with links and information on the criminal justice system.
