2016 Conference Logo - Large

TNOYS’ 33rd Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families took place August 9-12th, 2016, at the Westin Galleria in Houston. The four-day event offered exciting keynotes and interactive workshops incorporating the theme, “Stronger Together,” and showing the importance of collaboration and youth and family engagement. Workshops were focused on research- and evidence-based practices, new and innovative practices from the field, collaboration, relevant policies and laws, and organizational capacity.

For the first time, TNOYS invited youth and families to join us at the conference for a track focused on experiential learning, leadership and self-advocacy. Also for the first time, TNOYS offered a full day of pre-institute sessions free of charge on August 9th.
