Over 49 percent of youth report they have been bullied a school. The PARTI Program (Positive Alternative Recreation Teambuilding Impact) works with youth, schools, and philanthropic leaders to provide help and support to address this issue. Violence and bullying cannot be addressed without youth involvement. Reports show that many youths, from all age groups, do not believe that their school can effectively deal with issues of violence and bullying.
We deliver support activities for youth who suffer from bullying, depression, violent lifestyles, unhealthy relationships, and unstable families. We are successful in reducing antisocial behavior and promoting a healthy course of youth development through events, training, and advocacy for high-risk students. Participants develop life skills and business savviness skills to be able to deal with personal issues, social issues, and advocate for others.
We address truancy, low grades, little or no self-esteem, poor reading, and math skills, health inequalities and lack of information to make informed health decisions, little or no connection with their community, lack of work experience, drawn to gang life or the lifestyle - are all traits of at-risk youth.
