About the Cooper-Young Community Association

Our purpose …

is to form an association of residents and interested parties to work together to make our diverse and historic community a more desirable and safer place to live, worship, work, and play.

The CYCA is the neighborhood association for the Cooper-Young community located in Memphis, Tennessee. In the heart of Memphis- ‘Midtown’, the Cooper-Young community surrounds the intersections of Cooper St., and Young Avenue. Development started here in 1881, making Cooper-Young one of Memphis’s older neighborhoods. The community and the association have a long, vibrant history and are a vital part of the city of Memphis.
