About TNOYS’ Annual Conference
Now in its 39th 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 housing and homelessness services, child welfare, education, juvenile justice, health and behavioral health, and survivor services.
Guided by the conference theme, Rise to Your Potential, this year’s event will inspire our professional and youth attendees to challenge perceptions, bring their skills to new heights, and build the future of youth and family services in Texas.
We’re thrilled to welcome a dynamic lineup of keynote speakers who will inspire attendees to rise to their potential.
