The conference provides a valuable learning experience for youth and the professionals who work with them across a variety of systems, including juvenile justice, education, child welfare and more. It provides hands-on learning opportunities on building resilience, developing cultural competency, understanding important cutting-edge practices such as trauma-informed care, and much more. Stay tuned for more details when we release our conference program with information on all the keynote presentations and interactive workshops that will be offered. 

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 make a mark on the future of Texas’ youth.
