As a free service, PartySmart provides outreach booths with educational literature about drugs, sex & sexually transmitted infections, and other health and safety issues; free food, water, earplugs, condoms, and other supplies for personal health needs; and young volunteer peer counselors/educators to help prevent health & safety problems at raves, nightclubs, and other youth-oriented cultural and social events throughout Northern New Mexico. PartySmart’s peer counselors employ popular education and harm reduction strategies, respecting the ability of individuals to make informed, responsible choices for themselves and to help their peers do the same. They are trained in this by our more experienced volunteers, with the help of professionals from collaborating agencies. PartySmart educates promoters and venue managers about their responsibility to provide a healthy, safe, and secure environment, by providing published guidelines and feedback about safety issues at their events. PartySmart publishes a newsletter highlighting the contributions of young people to creating a healthy rave community. The editorial team includes PartySmart volunteers of all ages, who encourage their peers to contribute news, editorial, and creative material.
