9 - Empower youth to create a more just, equitable and sustainable food system.
6 - Cultivate youth leadership, healthy neighborhoods and food access through sustainable urban agriculture and entrepreneurship.
5 - Facilitate youth leadership, build community, and expand access to healthy food through sustainable urban agriculture, social entrepreneurship and education.
4 - Develop youth entrepreneurs through the growing, processing and vending of healthy, locally grown food.

Starting with the phrase “Empower youth” hits home since this is to be a youth driven project. The youth will be able to transfer skills acquired to any field they choose, not just “farming”. However, by focusing on the “food system” many social determinants will be addressed innately. Also, a concise statement helps keep the mission focused and on track.
