Youth Justice

The Prospect Hill Foundation seeks to secure transformational reforms for young people whose lives intersect with New York’s youth and adult justice systems.
The Foundation funds 1) advocacy that promotes policies and practices that are fair, effective and appropriate for youth and 2) projects that promote community-based models in New York that present non-incarceration strategies.
The Foundation is particularly interested in funding organizations and projects that promote leadership of formerly incarcerated youth and a concept of justice that advances rehabilitation, and integrates public safety with community development and “positive youth development” principles.
