The morning of the show, Jack and Rachel Antonoff will lead a service project with local students, corporate partners and talent to support New Alternatives, a program that works "to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth to enable them to 'go beyond' the shelter system." An interactive dialogue around music and LGBTQ activism will take place after lunch. The conversation, presented in collaboration with the Grammy Museum, will include students, community leaders, press and industry executives.

In a statement Jack Antonoff said, "New Alternatives is an amazing place that is fiercely committed to supporting New York's LGBTQ youth with services and a safe space. We are so delighted to be able to work with Above Average again this year to raise money for this vital organization the best way we know how: by putting on a great show."
