This action team uses national, state and local data to help guide strategies and goals. Assessment is an ongoing process as new partnerships are developed and new resources/data become available. Members analyze, compare and determine the effectiveness of our efforts and make recommendations. Data drives our CTC efforts.
- Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS): The PAYS is the primary source of information regarding youth behaviors, attitudes and knowledge across four domains (community, school, family and individual/peer). Members analyze new PAYS data every two years and identify strengths and challenges within each section of the PAYS. Findings are presented to the CTC Coalition in order to prioritize risk and protective factors and determine prevention programming.
- Community Resource Assessment: Gathers information on evidence-based programs/services in Mifflin County, identifies gaps in service/resources and makes informed recommendations for strategic planning regarding needs of community.
