- end youth incarceration; and/or
- support Indigenous individuals/families/communities experiencing youth detention

- Projects must be achievable within the funding available (maximum $8,000).
- Smaller projects, even very small, are very welcome.
- Projects must be completed within one year of the project’s start date.
