We have hosted an event that brought us amazing young people who want to adocate for their peers and for youth. We launched their project this summer;
We are partnering with the Positive Alternative Recreation Teambuilding Impact (PARTI) Program. We want to establish a relationship with your corporation and want to inquire how can we position our self to engage your employees. PARTI, a 501 C 3 non-profit, serves youth throughout Los Angeles Clara County. We are getting a lot of recognition for the work we are doing to change the lives of youth from all backgrounds. We want to partner with your company to identify Champions for youth. Our board and executive staff are drawn by our values to support this County’s youth and align with the desire for all children to:
• Feel like they have caring adults working with them • Feel like their voice is being heard • Feel like they are prepared to deal with conflict and challenging situations in their life • Feel like they are connected to opportunities to help them thrive after high school
