In January 2023, the youth of our organization, becuase of your support, organized and led the 23rd annual Martin Luther King Jr. Stop The Violence Event. Bay area youth, through the impact of your donations, partnered with youth, business and civic members, to lift up voices for safety, violence prevention, and mental wellness. Our project will support campaigns in Santa Clara County, Alameda County, San Mateo County and Los Angeles County.
Through your support, PARTI was featured as a spotlight GlobalGiving Camapign (@parti_program) for our project, Youth - Civic Action for Racial and Social Equity,which provides a platform for BIPOC youths to have equality and inclusion in civic, social, and service leadership. Beginning in March, we will focus on supporting youth to build campaigns that focus on gender equality and diversity and inclusion.
You make a huge impact on the lives of youth who need inspiration, direction, and support. SInce our last campaign, we have impacted 350+ youth.

OUR LONG TERM VISION THROUGH YOUR SUPPORT:
Youth are amazing and they when given the opportunity to be in environments that provide them equity to be change makers. Over the past 90 days, youth, with the support of PARTI teens and staff participated in conversations with adults through the U.S. Department of State and the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) to host conversations with international visitors from Tamil to provide feedback on our program designed to addressing critical issues pertaining to online safety for girls and young women. PARTI also partnered with the County of Santa Clara Internand Earn Program to provide supervised internships for 12 youth from foster care and/or, families who received county cash assistants.
PARTI youth led summers including:

"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
Youth are amazing and PARTI Program makes every effort to make sure that they feel supported. We don't think that we say Thank you enough to the adults who stand up and dedicate their resources to e champions for our youth! Today, we want to stop and say thank you.

"I really want to get out of my comfort zone and make a difference in our society and community. Since lockdown and the pandemic it’s become easier to stay isolate and alone. To fix that not only with myself but others around me I want to create safe environments where you can be yourself and make friends, while getting to relearn things about ourself. I like to meet new people and create friends among friends." 2021 youth participant
PARTI has always been a voice for diversity, inclusion, gender equality, racial justice, youth voice and service to community. While many organizations decided that it is now time to stand for racial justice and funding will follow, PARTI has been communicating this message for decades.
