CCPY is a top-rated youth intervention program in the East Side Union High School District, and a partner in the City of San Jose's strategy for gang and dropout prevention. Our program achieves a 90% success rate of keeping teens in school, the critical factor that leads to a better quality of life, improved family relationships, higher earning potential, and meaningful contribution to community and society. In 2011, CCPY was selected for a site visit by the U.S. Attorney General's office on their tour of California's program that prevent crime, protect the safety of our communities, and ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to improve their lives and fulfill their potential.
