- Multiple $500 scholarships each year to high school seniors from law enforcement or first responder families and for seniors heading to college for careers in law enforcement and first responder-related fields.
- Support for Boys & Girls Clubs in Northern California with whom we have built a relationship, we provide lunch at events, activity parcels, in-person support, etc.
- FBI Youth Outreach Day, beginning 2022, which connects the FBI and the Alumni Association to students in high-risk schools and helps set them on a better path.
