Our summer program is flying by as we are already concluding the sixth week of our 10 week summer program. With this week being our “Service Community” week, our kids have been busy! Here’s a couple of the things we’ve been up to:
- Collecting books for Books for Africa
- Packing meals for Feed My Starving Children
- Pulling invasive weeds at Mississippi Regional Park
- Planting trees for the City of New Brighton
- Baking treats for the Police and Fire Departments of City of Mounds View & Brooklyn Park/Center
- Making animal toys for the Animal Humane Society
- Cleaning local parks for the City of Shoreview, Mounds View, and New Brighton.
Service to others has always been a pillar of CPY’s programming. Overall, our youth have totaled over 350 hours of community service just this week!
With our annual Golf Ball Drop event and Stockyard Days Fundraisers just around the corner, please consider supporting those that support your community either through your time or through a donation. Thank you!
On August 6th at 3pm, Brightwood Hills Golf Course will be hosting CPY’s annual Golf Ball Drop during their own Stockyard Days Golf Tournament. Stop by to say hello and watch it hail without risking your car’s beautiful exterior!
In case you don’t know how the drop works – you purchase tickets that correspond to a numbered golf ball. The golf balls are then all dropped (surprise!) from above onto a putting green. The ball closest to the hole wins up to $5,000! If several balls end up in the hole, the prize is split among the winners. You don’t need to be present to win.
Feeling lucky? Get your tickets now by contacting us or stopping by Brightwood Hills on the day of the drop. We’ll be selling tickets in person starting at 8:00 am. Tickets are $10 each and support CPY’s continued efforts to support at-risk youth in our community.
CPY is so lucky to have such wonderful partners in the community!
On Tuesday, July 18th from 5-9pm, Chipotle in St. Anthony will be donating a portion of their sales to help CPY meet our 2017 fundraising goals! If you love burritos (and we know you do), please stop by to take care of dinner and donating at the same time! How’s that for efficiency?
As a reminder, you can find Chipotle St. Anthony in the St. Anthony Village Shopping Center off Silver Lake Road:
2701 39th Ave NE #128, St Anthony, MN 55421
Thanks and hope to see you there!
CPY and Christ the King are celebrating their partnership the best way we know how – with Ice Cream! Please join us for an ice cream social and carnival on Tuesday, July 11th from 6-8pm at Christ the King. Here’s to 20 more years!
CPY is proud to announce that we’ll be providing youth entertainment during the 2017 New Brighton Stockyard Days! This will be one of the biggest events CPY has undertaken, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’ll be running a great mix of games, inflatables, and other fun stuff – check us out during the weekend at Long Lake Park, or come see us after the Vet’s Park Kiddie Parade. We’ll definitely release more details as we get later in the summer.

Community Partners with Youth was created in 1997 as a collaboration between the City of New Brighton, the Mounds View Public Schools, and the faith community to provide high-quality after school and summer programming for local youth, with a focus on our at-risk children. What initially started as a program providing a safe, nurturing environment for our local youth has grown into an organization providing safety, development, opportunity, education, and experiences for over 550 children per year.
CPY is proud to be the organization it has grown into today – an integral supporter of New Brighton and Mounds View youth, assisting them in building the skills necessary for academic, personal, and spiritual achievement! We look forward to the next 20 years and the opportunities they will bring!
We invite you to join and support us on our journey as we celebrate this year – we have several major events this year (details to follow):
- Our Spring Luncheon (March 7th, 2017) at the New Brighton Community Center
- Our Summer Golf Ball Drop and Carnival
- Our Fall Gala, including dinner, entertainment, silent and live auctions!
Of course, you can always show your support for CPY’s mission at any time by making a donation!
