Thank you for supporting and championing youth and communities by being champions for the Positive Alternative Recreation Teambuilding Impact (PARTI) Program and our Youth - Civic Action for Racial and Social Equity Project. As PARTI begins to shift our activities to empower youth as they return back to school and transforming lives of youth who suffer from bullying, trauma and depression this fall through our Annual Bullying Prevention Event (Oct.20), we are mindful that youth, families, and communities will need additional support understanding the ramifications of the new and recent Affirmative Action decisions in our Country (USA). PARTI understands that we could not have the impact that we have in underserved communities, so we must first take the time to thank you for those who contribute to our mission and share with youth the results of our 3rd quarter and previous GlobalGiving Campaign:
Results of April Little By Little Campaign (April 2-7 2023): Total Raised -$40,296, # of donors: 528

Please consider supporting this campaign to empower and impact youth as we begin to celebrate youth and communities as they return back to school and our programs, activities, and events to keep youth, stop bullies, and affirm the value of every voice, as we all navigate through the aftermath of our country’s Affirmative Action decisions that will affect our vulnerable youth and communities.

"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
