Porta-Parties

Face To Face Communication

To Tackle Social Isolation

 

Porta-Parties

Communicate. Even when it’s uncomfortable or uneasy. One of the best ways to heal is simply getting everything out.” ~ TheMindsJournal

We believe in the value of face-to-face communication and want to teach young people how to be more familiar and comfortable in the real not digital world.

How it works

Our solution to social isolation was aimed toward reversing the lack of face-to-face communication among today’s youth. Where do people interact face-to-face we asked ourselves?  At a party!  So we created a portable party, hence the name Porta-Parties, bringing games and activities to schools that encourage communication and teamwork through face-to-face interactions. Our goal is to teach young people how essential in-person communication is to their overall health and how their choice of words  when interacting can affect the outcome of the communications.
