Action-Taskforces For Change.
The direct action of our work emanates from three taskforces: Micro-Venture Capital Fund, Legal Services Fund, and Community Wellness General Fund, that bring about long-term change and sustainability.
1. Micro-Venture Capital Fund
The goal of this taskforce is to promote a free member-driven “micro-venture capital fund” for small enterprise innovation.
A grassroots direct and online drive is utilized to ensure that youth have the start-up funds and funding access opportunities to operate as "creatives" and "makers."
2. Legal Services Fund
The mission of this taskforce is to broadcast the scope of legal options for entrepreneurs, and address those frequently faced by young innovators e.g. start-ups development, LLC formation, strategic litigations, cash bail, etc.
To nurture and develop young innovators in urban neighborhoods such as Weeksville, Brooklyn, require that the underlying barriers are addressed. Youth involved in the criminal justice dragnet, for instance, need assistance to commute or vacate the legal liabilities that often hinder their success as innovators.
3. Community Wellness General Fund
The third and final taskforce, though no less important, is one that takes on myriad issues that arise due to political climate or public policy. For example, affordable housing, health and nutrition, immigration and religious rights, student loans, etc. all play a significant role in giving young entrepreneurs the space and ability to participate in the 21st Century Modern Workforce.
These member-run taskforces will determine the needful actions to launch and sustain their respective goals.
