TYSA Presents "Parents You Matter" to Department of Education Professionals Across Staten Island
In collaboration with the UFT and Staten Island Borough Hall, TYSA has adapted its "Drugs, Alcohol, Your Child, and You - Staten Island Parent's You Matter!" presentation to create a DOE Professional Development workshop. TYSA is rolling out the workshop in all middle schools across the borough. In our first week, five workshops were given to over 800 participants in the following schools: PS/IS 861, IS 49, IS 28, IS 75, IS 51, IS 61.
We thank our wonderful partners who delivered the workshops: Pat Tooker of Wagner College, Geoffrey Debery of ThriveNYC, Amanda Wexler of YMCA, Stephen Bennett of UAU, Carol Pisapia of Northwell Health, and TYSA's Susan Hudec.
