About Us

The Vision for CYAP is to change lives and empower youth to achieve greatness.

The Mission for CYAP
is to promote and provide the youth of our community with a safe environment and encourage positive life choices through education, recreation, and community service activities.
Our History
CYAP was formed 12 years ago with the goal of providing the youth of our surrounding communities positive activities in which they might participate.
We have started activities that include arts, sports, and community service. Many of these activities are provided at no cost to our youth. 

Our focus for the near future will be directed at Free Summer Youth Activities, Cultural Events, and a Summer Concert Series that will include many local artists.  The concerts will begin at 7:00 p.m. and are open to all age groups, youth and adult.  We will announce the concerts here and on our Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Community-Youth-Activities-Program-Inc/79328695779 
 
Community Collaboration
As part of our mission, we have assisted both financially and by direct assistance with other organizations such as:
    1. American Cancer Society "Relay for Life"
    2. After Prom for several of our local schools.
    3. City of Purcell
    4. University of Oklahoma
    5. Student organizations such as Honor Society and Key Club.
    6. Community Alliance of Resources for Everyone
    7. Norman Alcohol Information Center
    8. Purcell Public Schools
How We Are Funded
We are a very "grass roots" organization with over 1000 hours of volunteerism provided by our members. Our primary source of funding is our annual golf tournament that is usually held on the 3rd Saturday in August at the Brent Bruehl Memorial Golf Course, in Purcell, OK.
Community and business donations provide many of the resources necessary to provide the activities for the children and community.
If you would like to make a tax-decuctible contribution, you may do so by sending it to:
CYAP
P.O. Box 534
Purcell, OK 73080
 
What We Are Doing:
We are working with city government, organizations, businesses, and individuals
to provide the things that we have listed here.

We are moving away from sponsoring sports programs at this time.  There are many groups in the community that are currently offering basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer and we do not feel we need to offer sports programs.  We will focus mostly on free activities and other cultural or arts related events.

During the summer months we offer free "Swim and Movie" events for youth in grades 5 through 12. This is done by collaborating with the Pioneer Library System, City of Purcell, Purcell Police Department and the McClain County Sherriff's Office.

We Need You
 All of the things listed above require a lot of manpower and energy in order to be successful.  We need volunteers that share the dream of CYAP and are willing to work with the children and youth in the surrounding communities.  Come to one of our meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, 5:30 p.m., Tommy's Place, 2nd and Comanche, Purcell and we will put you to work as we strive to build great young people.
