The CYD Teen Summit is set for June 27-29, 2013!
We are currently seeking presenters for this event.
The CYD Teen Summit is an annual event held for select participants of the Community Youth Development (“CYD”) program. The goal of the program is to guide youth in developing leadership skills and attitudes. The CYD program and CYD Teen Summit are programs of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). DFPS contracts with TNOYS to plan, facilitate, and evaluate the success of the event.
The Teen Summit is collaborative in nature and provides opportunities for youth and adults to provide input about the design, implementation and evaluation of the event.
Each of the 15 CYD sites (in zip codes across Texas with high rates of juvenile crime) select one male and one female adult chaperone to act as partners in learning with 6 eligible youth members from their local CYD Youth Advisory Committee (YAC). The YAC Coordinator serves as one of the chaperones for the event.
