Community Partnership for Youth (CPY)

More Information
What is CPY?
Community Partnership for Youth (CPY) is a prevention program providing positive alternatives to gangs, drugs and violence while reinforcing individual strengths.

Our vision is to provide our youth with a safe, structured environment that encourages healthy boundaries, positive self-esteem and the ability to make good choices for a full and successful life.

What do Students do during CPY?

During the Afterschool Mentor/Tutor Program, students receive help with their homework with the emphasis on learning and read individually or in small groups to work on improving their literacy. Every day the children meet in what we call “circle time”. They sing songs, share what’s happening in their lives, and go over the CPY Standards. The standards help to build confidence and self-worth, as well as develop strong character. After this is completed they have the opportunity to play outside in a safe environment and/or have the opportunity to participate in the Art Academy. CPY also provides working parents with the peace of mind that their child is not only safe after school but he/she is learning skills to be successful in life.

Our comprehensive program works with the “whole” child, their families, schools and community agencies. The goal of CPY is to provide a supportive, structured, creative environment for children to learn and grow.
