This year we are excited to once again 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 adults and youth to build concrete skills, learn what’s on the cutting edge in youth services, earn 16 hours of CEUs, and explore how their unique talents can contribute to the future of Texas’ youth. 

TNOYS provides continuing education credit hours for professionals. The full conference will offer 16 CEU hours and each of the two pre-conference institutes will offer 6 CEU hours. We are an approved CEU provider for Licensed Child Care Administrators (LCCAs), Licensed Child Placing Agency Administrators (LCPAAs), licensed social workers and licensed professional counselors (LPC Program Provider #2420; Social Work Provider #6875), continuing professional education providers (CPE provider #902-679), and our credit hours are typically approved for LMFTs. This conference is also approved for CEUs for the following substance abuse professional licenses:  LCDCs, Associate Prevention Specialists (APS), Certified Prevention Specialists (CPS), and Peer Mentor/Peer Recovery Designation (PM/PRC).
