-Education Justice: Creating a big sib/little sib mentoring program where upperclassmen at your high school mentor youth at your local middle school
-Racial and Gender Justice: Planning a day of action at your school where all students meet to talk about identity and the impact our identities play
The Foundation will prioritize Brooklyn-based projects that:
- Fit into one or more of the justice pillars, outlined above

- Help young people deepen historical and cultural understanding of their experiences and community issues
- Have a neighborhood-based and community-driven approach
