Areas of Focus
CPY’s area of focus centers on working with at-risk youth in the surrounding community. Specifically, CPY aims to turn the peak hours for youth crime and victimization into the peak time for empowerment of the community’s most vulnerable population.
Our target population largely reflects the greater demographics of Seaside, although we do receive some students from Sand City, Monterey, Marina, and Pacific Grove. This year to date 92% of the CPY students come from very low income families, with another 7.5% being classified as low income. Additionally, with the expansion into Salinas we have a large majority of students learning English as a second language. CPY recognizes that we cannot do it alone.
