Provide Access To Leadership Opportunities Locally, Regionally And Nationally.
Through donations and champions in California and the Pacific Northwest, PARTI is creating partnerships with rising artists and performers.
In the spring of 2022, we surveyed Bay Area youth who reported that culturally appropriate mental health support as they navigate out of Covid-19 and trauma of school and community violence and mass shootings. The strength of the program throughout this time has been its commitment to elevating youth voice and co-creating projects with the community. This event will provide direct support for 5,000+ youth throughout California to receive mental wellness support, create bullying prevention toolkits for their school, and to create 4 Stop The Violence youth led campaigns, annually launching on Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend in 2023.Building cohorts to drive these campaigns, is our action plan to support youth safety.
As PARTI prepares for our Summer Kickoff Concert, we want to point out the amazing collaboratives we have been engaging in throughout California and the Pcific North West. It is true - we put on events to create awareness about opportunities to gain awareness about social issues and to coach performers how to become philanthropists by sharing their talents and gifts. We were able to do this in our Martin Luther King Jr. Stop the Violence Event in January, Stop The Violence East Bay Event in February, and Stop The Violence 650/SF Peninsula event in March. Thank you for your support. We could not have reached our mark without you. Through collective events, we are rwaching communities who are disenfranchised.
PARTI has benefited from support from college students at Cal Stat University East Bay, UC Berkeley and across schools from the PAcific Northwest to rise up and serve as mentors as we prepare to reach 5,000 youth in service.
Testimonial: "During distance learning, there were numerous times where I felt unmotivated and unhappy with my friendships and school life. The PARTI program had this inclusive environment that allowed me to talk to adults like Winston. I was able to create a plan moving forward to see how to manage all of the different things I was balancing in my life." 2021 participant
