Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2018 TNOYS Conference June 5-8 in Houston, TX! We are excited to embrace a new format and focus this year. Our conference theme is “Pump Up The Volume: Elevating Youth Voice through Youth-Adult Partnerships,” and we will welcome an integrated audience of youth services providers, youth (ages 15-24), families, as well as our child welfare board partners and other community members.
Please read all information before applying to present to ensure you understand this year’s conference theme, structure, and goals. This year, we are fully integrating youth and adult partnerships into the fabric of the event, and priority will be given to sessions that incorporate or showcase youth-adult partnerships. If you work with youth who might be interested in co-presenting with you at the event, you can download and share this flyer to promote the opportunity and encourage them to apply with you. You can customize the flyer with your name and contact information before sharing.
TNOYS will review presenter applications on a rolling basis until February 15, 2018. We will not consider incomplete applications. We plan to make all selections and notify presenters by mid-March 2018.
Questions can be directed to Lara O’Toole at LOToole@tnoys.org.
