Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2001, $86,605)

The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is the fiscal agent for the Safe & Drug-Free Schools Community Advisory Committee. The advisory committee serves the Fairbanks North Star Borough which consists of the townships of Fairbanks and North Pole (i.e. in general, the area north of the Tanana Flats, east of the Nenana River, south of the White Mountains, and west of the Jappan Hills), both of which are urban communities with a total population of approximately 83,694.
The goals of the advisory committee are to: 1) reduce substance abuse among youth in the Fairbanks community, and 2) establish and expand the community prevention coalition to assist in this effort.
To achieve the two goals, the advisory committee will implement the following strategies:
1) identify resources and obtain commitments from community members to take the initiative in addressing gaps in services for all students in the district;
2) recruit advisory board members for vacant key stakeholder positions (i.e., business community, diverse non-represented populations) to strengthen and enhance community coalition;
3) support and expand media strategies beyond the United Way's social marketing project, COMPASS;
4) sponsor community alternative activities;
5) provide awareness education and training to community members, students, parents, school-based faculty, staff and administrators to increase their perception of harm resulting from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs;
6) provide support to school-based prevention/intervention programs;
7) collaborate with community youth-oriented programs to expand community outreach efforts;
8) create a plan for sustainable funding of coalition work beyond grant period; and
9) reassess and improve evaluation plan for coalition initiatives.
