The TYSA coalition is seeking a contractor to guide the Steering Committee through a strategic planning session in September. Submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 23rd.
Project Scope: TYSA is seeking a consultant to assist coalition members in revisiting its priority areas and goals and assessing emerging and relevant data to develop a strategic plan for the next 2 years. The consultant will distill and present internally and externally collected data and facilitate group discussions to identify clear next steps for the TYSA coalition.
Background: The Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness serves as the backbone organization for multiple public health collaboratives aimed at reducing morbidity and mortality related to chronic disease and behavioral health conditions. TYSA formed in 2011 to address alarming rates of underage drinking and prescription drug use among youth under 18. The initiative later expanded its focus to include alcohol, marijuana, heroin and prescription drug use in young people aged 12-25.Tackling Youth Substance Abuse (TYSA) is a coalition of people and organizations that have come together with a mission to decrease youth and young adult substance misuse on Staten Island. It is a dynamic partnership of both private and non-profit organizations, city and state government agencies, philanthropists, parents, teachers and teens, many of who have been working to combat alcohol and drug use for years.
TYSA initially underwent a full year of strategic planning with guidance from the consulting firm FSG. FSG was re-engaged in early 2015 to assist the coalition in assessing their progress and goals. 3 years later, TYSA seeks to undergo another in-depth introspective analysis to determine next steps for the coalition’s agenda
