Current Opportunities:

TITLE: TYSA PAX Field Coordinator


REPORTS TO: Director of Behavioral Health/TYSA Project Director


The mission of the Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness (SIPCW) is to promote wellness and improve the health of the Staten Island community through collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach. Improving community health is a collaborative effort, and SIPCW leverages trusted relationships to build coalitions to address SI public health issues. SIPCW has extensive expertise in convening diverse community stakeholders, utilizing data to drive decisions, and identifying evidence-based strategies to collectively approach complex health issues for the most at-risk communities on SI.


Established in 2011 as SIPCW’s cornerstone project, Tackling Youth Substance Abuse (TYSA) is a cross-sector coalition of over 50 different partners from across the continuum of substance use. TYSA seeks to reduce youth and young adult substance use using a population level approach by identifying gaps, aligning resources, facilitating collaboration among stakeholders, developing & implementing strategies, changing norms and strengthening community assets. TYSA has a proven track record in following the evidence to improve health outcomes for young people.


PAX Good Behavior Game (GBG) is an OASAS approved Evidence Based Program (EBP) that has effects on self-regulation and prosocial behavior which produces better academic, behavioral and lifetime outcomes, including reduced substance use.  Rather than having a set curriculum of scripted lessons, the PAX GBG involves classroom teachers’ integration of kernels, which are evidence-based strategies to increase students’ self-regulation.  Schools are often supportive of this program since it is flexibly incorporated into current pedagogy as opposed to a separate activity in the school day.  PAX GBG is implemented directly by classroom teachers after attending a full-day training.


SIPCW seeks a Coordinator to support the implementation of PAX GBG in Staten Island elementary schools. With oversight from the Director of Behavioral Health, the Coordinator will work closely with community based GBG coaches and SIPCW evaluation team to ensure all project goals are met and outcomes are achieved.
