Youth can make a difference in how legislators vote on issues that affect their lives!

Youth in Action Capitol Day is a TNOYS program that provides teens with opportunities to learn about the policymaking process and directly advocate for causes that are important to them. Every two years, hundreds of youth and adults, representing cities and regions from across the state, come together at the State Capitol during the Texas Legislative Session to share policy concerns and recommendations with each other and legislators.
