Community Partnership for Youth is a youth prevention program for a variety of ages that aims to provide positive experience and alternatives to gangs, drugs and violence while reinforcing individual strengths. The program's vision is to provide local 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.

"It's always nice to get out in the community and give my time to an awesome group like CPY," said Volesky. "These kids are our future, so I always enjoy sharing my story and shedding some light on their lives where I can."
