Over 49 percent of youth report they have been bullied a school. With the wide access to the internet, bullying has become an uncontrollable issue, leading to incidents of youth suicide. The PARTI Program (Positive Alternative Recreation Teambuilding Impact) works with youth, schools, and philanthropic leaders to provide help and support to address this issue. We need your support to provide resources for youth, schools, and families. Please give!
Violence and bullying cannot be addressed without youth involvement. Youth are also concerned with the way administrators deal with bullying once they have been notified that it has occurred. What we have found is, youth need to be given a voice or a platform to help identify, address, and be a part of the solution to help address bullying in their schools and communities. Also, tools and resources need to be provided to admin. and teachers that can measure their ability to address bullying.
PARTI gives youth that voice needed to be heard! "I admired one of the other participant's courage and growth because she spoke to me about the past of being a victim of bullying. I feel good about myself being able to spread the message of stopping violence & being able to be a role model for others..thank you for bringing me into PARTI. You have become a big positive influence in my life. I have been able to grow so much through the program and it has helped me gain confidence...!" Jasmine
