the Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness

We Have the Resources You Need

The Tackling Youth Substance Abuse (TYSA) initiative is a coalition of people and organizations who have come together to decrease youth substance abuse on Staten Island. It is a dynamic partnership of 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 abuse for years. The TYSA initiative is different because all of its members work together to
help one another, and the whole community, tackle youth substance abuse.
