The P.A.R.T.I. Program is the most effective non-violence initiative in America. Leaders, I am a business professional and I have attended a few of the ‘Stop The Violence’ events put on by the P.A.R.T.I. Program. I am always amazed at how teenagers from all ethnic and financial backgrounds work diligently together to accomplish their common goal. We must ensure that their work will continue. – lmani Groce

P.A.R.T.I. Squad is a positive movement. P.A.R.T.I. Squad works to keep youth in the community active and strives to educate others who are less fortunate. In this day where there are a growing number of single family homes, it is very important that we support programs that promote peace. With continued budget cuts in the education area kids today are left to be raised by the streets. PARTI gives kids choices. – Julie Clayton

The P.A.R.T.I. Squad has been on our campus (Oak Grove High School) for the past six years.

The PARTI Squad is well respected on campus. – Jeffrey A Gingrich

I am honored to have an opportunity to tell everyone who reads this about the great program Winston Ashby has created. I have worked with Winston and attended his events over the years.

My daughter & I recently worked with Winston for one of his shows. His commitment to our youth is amazing. His effectiveness as a role model gives our youth something to believe in. His vision for ‘a better way’ is awe inspiring and through the help of grants he WILL make the change for our youth! – Christine Herrera

As a counselor in a middle school, I see firsthand the way that our youth are bored and lonely without parents at home or programs to engage them. This boredom then turns into drug & alcohol abuse, gang life & a myriad of other poor choices that have a serious effect on their futures. PARTI provides an alternative to the negative & an opportunity for success. More money would help more deserving kids! – Allison Fine

I am very impressed with the efforts of P.A.R.T.I. Program’s events and shows. My students are excited that we‘ve recently brought it to our school. With further financial assistance, they can only bloom and grow. We‘d appreciate any aid and support to improve their program. – Josh Greene (Student services, Andrew Hill High School)

I have worked with Winston for nearly 15 years and his goals and objectives have always been clear – to help change the community through the impact of our young people. The P.A.R.T.I.

I strongly support the goals, focus and substance of the PARTI Program. Over its decade of existence, it has provided a positive resource for Bay Area teens and has focused them on issues of leadership, team building and community organization. As such services are in dire need of structural support, I urge that every effort be made to aid and support the PARTI Program. – Jason Stewart
