"With COVID-19 cutting off the last few months of my junior year, I felt helpless in what I could do for myself and those around me. The circumstances had changed my access to resources and it was a situation that I needed to learn and adapt to. Reaching out to PARTI, and Winston himself,." Samantha 10th grade
The mission of the Positive Alternative Recreation Teambuilding Impact (P.A.R.T.I.) Program is to promote education around youth healthy lifestyles and healthy decision making.
Every day we work to transform the lives of youth who suffer from bullying, depression, violent lifestyles, unhealthy relationships, and unstable families.
1. Support 1,000 students of color with socio-emotional youth development to support safety, equity, and stop bullies and violence.
2. Build healthy violent/conflict-free environments addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion for safer school climates.
3. Provide youth with leadership, financial literacy and volunteer opportunities that focus on addressing core youth issues that affect them being successful in school.
Phase 1: Focuses on character (social-emotional) development.
Phase 2: Focuses on life skills and college/career readiness.
Phase 3: Focuses on community asset connections and employability preparation.
We target locations that are dealing with high issues of violence, bullying, and poor school morale. We empower youth to stay out of trouble, and become contributors to their school and community through interactive activities, curriculum, and engagement.
We connect youth with leadership classes and volunteer opportunities that focus on addressing core youth issues which include increased self-esteem and confidence and increased connections to caring adults. Through partnerships with civic, corporate, and community supporters, we have developed a program that works with young people and addresses important areas:
Social: Young people find their voice, take action, and make an impact on community issues.
Business Savvy: Building 21st century career development skills
The target population is low-income youth and the Fusion Program teaches various forms of performing arts such as Stepping (a form of African Dance), Polynesian Dance, Spoken Word, Hip Hop Dance, etc. The Fusion Program allows them to perform in the community and offers them ways to engage in other artistic and cultural traditions. We provide novice and advance performing groups and avenues for participants to explore Digital Arts, Event and Music Production.
