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.

"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

"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
