2018 Annual Conference

TNOYS 35th Annual Conference on Service to Youth and Families is scheduled to take place June 5-8, 2018, at the Westin Galleria in Houston. Join us for lively keynote speakers, interactive workshops, and fun networking events that will incorporate our theme, “Pump Up the Volume: Elevating Youth Voice and Strengthening Youth-Adult Partnerships”! Registration is now open for both youth and professional attendees.

This year we are excited to integrate youth into our full conference, alongside our traditional audience of providers and other stakeholders. Click here to learn more about the research that supports this unique approach. The event will offer dynamic, engaging, and collaborative sessions that allow youth and adults to build concrete skills, learn what’s on the cutting edge in youth services, earn 16+ CEUs, and be part of a memorable experience.  

We are also pleased to welcome the Texas Council of Child Welfare Boards and the Texas Foster Family Association as official conference partners this year and look forward to having their members in attendance with us.
