On the field, Atlanta Falcons’ Johnathan Cyprien is a strong safety and off the field, he is just as strong when it comes to donating his time!

Often times you can find Cyprien helping others, something it is clear he loves to do. Through his foundation the Cyp Squad At Risk Youth foundation, Cyprien has done some amazing work benefiting kids who are underprivileged.

When Cyprien had time off, he used it to spread joy to others by joining with a youth football league in Nashville.  He also hosts a free football camp for kids ages 7 to 17 and joins in on his teammate’s camps as well to help out and teach essential skills.  To benefit charity, Cyprien also hosted a Pro Bowl watch party complete with a fun meet and greet and awesome NFL memorabilia.

To inspire the Police Athletic League, Cyprien attended their charity golf event and surprised them with a signed jersey for their youth teaching center.  Knowing just how vital and pivotal education is, Cyprien read books to kids to help forge their love of learning.  His tremendous charitable work earned him the key to North Miami Beach.  When it came time for the annual Music City Bowl, he gifted kids of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America tickets to the event.  When back to school time comes, Cyprien provides backpacks filled with all of the necessary school supplies.  Cyprien has also sponsored and granted wishes for numerous kids in need, putting a smile on everyone involved faces.

When the Coronavirus pandemic struck, Cyprien posted a message of inspiration on Instagram saying that we must all stay safe, stay home, and stay strong.  Like he always does, he encouraged us to stay positive and make the best of it and better ourselves and others along the way, which is exactly what he did.  Knowing how difficult it is to get groceries at this time due to store policies, procedures, and safety measure and precautions as well as lack of availability, Cyprien decided to partner with Joshua’s Heart, which aims to eradicate food insecurity and alleviate poverty and hunger for those in need, to provide 400 families in the city of North Miami Beach, Florida.  A kind gesture like that can go a long way for those who need it most.  Cyprien also partnered with Camarbre, a lifestyle brand to sell masks with proceeds benefiting his foundation.  To purchase one go to
