Our Experience With Party Corps:

At The Crossroads is an organization in San Francisco that reaches out to homeless youth at their point of need and works with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives.

We are huge fans of Party Corps! We were recently the beneficiary of Party Corps' November concert, and we couldn't have been happier with the event!

Coordinating the event with Alexis and Olivia  and the rest of the Party Corps team was a joy - they are enthusiastic, organized leaders who are passionate about connecting people with good music and important causes in the community.

The concert was not only packed with incredible talent - Carolyn Malachi's performance was absolutely amazing, and guests enjoyed dancing to Señor Oz's DJ mix - but the event also gave us a unique opportunity to share about At The Crossroads and the young people we work with. 

Thank you, Party Corps, for your creativity, enthusiasm and community-building!

GirlVentures

Mission Statement: GirlVentures is a unique Bay Area nonprofit that empowers adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths through outdoor adventure and leadership courses. GirlVentures deliberately recruits Bay Area girls from a variety of backgrounds, helping them to Live Healthy, Relate Wisely and Lead Confidently. Two-thirds of girls on each course come from low- to middle-income families and receive partial or full scholarships to participate. Our school year and summer courses build connections with our natural environment, as well as confidence and character that girls bring back to their lives at home, in school and in the community.

Description: Our courses connect youth with the outdoors through 7-14 day expeditions that are enticing and accessible. Complete with transportation, top quality gear, healthy food, professional, fun and compassionate instructors, and a robust curriculum, our appropriately challenging adventures engage youth in discovering their inner fortitude and realizing they are capable of so much more than they thought. These extended periods in nature with intentional reflections (sola time, daily writing, etc.) help girls find their place in the natural environment and begin to feel sustained and nurtured by it. Girls are often astounded to realize the beauty and wonder in their ‘backyard’ when they round the bend on their hike out of Point Reyes and see both the breathtaking ocean vista behind them and the skyline of San Francisco/home in front of them. These experiences foster a sense of stewardship and a desire to protect their new-found friend: mother nature. Curriculum along the way reinforces their discoveries about how connected we are with the land & waterways as we discuss LNT ethics and witness our own impact. Our approach is strength-based, affording girls the time and space to take healthy risks, both physical and emotional. Girls learn to trust and support themselves and one another while kayaking, backpacking, rock-climbing and more. Girls go back to school, home and their communities with a renewed sense of confidence, character and connection with nature. From self-care to alliance building; from creative expression, to leadership and decision-making; from technical skills, to teambuilding; a connection with the environmental is woven throughout our courses.

Amazing organization tying together good music, feel-good vibes, and philanthropy. 

I'm a staff member for LYRIC (Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center, a San Francisco social justice organization partnering with and empowering queer youth). On a handful of occasions, we have been chosen as a beneficiary of the various innovative Party Corps initiatives (including Pop-Up Concerts for a Cause, connecting LYRIC to almost 10 other concert organizers).

I have experienced nothing but the warmest, most responsive, most professional interactions from everyone on Party Corps' staff. Plus, they always ensure agreements are thoughtfully constructed and seen through to the end.  

Party Corps' hearts (and money) are in it to win it. For us, as a small organization who depends on the generosity of our community to continue sustaining our work with young people, those kinds of intentions and concrete commitment are rare, invaluable, and so so appreciated.

I work for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. in San Francisco and since 1978, we have been a non-profit serving survivors of domestic violence. Party Corps has been an amazing ally in our work, helping our agency to raise vital funding to support our programs which include therapy, support groups, a 24 hour support line, community education, and more. They have a dedicated staff and truly understand the complexities in having to fund-raise and how taxing it can be on a small nonprofit that might not have to do so!
