Now in its 38th year, TNOYS’ Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families brings together attendees from across systems and around the state to network, have fun, and build concrete skills to better serve our state’s youth, young adults, and families.

The conference provides a valuable learning experience for youth and the professionals who work with them across a variety of systems, including child welfare, education, juvenile justice, health and behavioral health, housing and homelessness services, and victim and survivor services. Guided by our conference theme, Rooted in Power, this year’s event will provide training and inspiration to help professionals and young people discover how they can make a difference for the future of Texas’ youth.

This year, we will once again welcome a mix of professional and youth attendees. Learn more about youth engagement at the conference here.
