Youth engagement is always an important part of TNOYS’ Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families. This year’s conference will once again offer the unique opportunity for professionals to learn from and alongside young people, experiencing first-hand the positive impact of youth-adult partnerships and elevating youth voice.

Please note: Pre-Conference Institutes are restricted to youth-serving professionals. Youth and young adults are not permitted to register for Pre-Conference Institutes.

The in-person conference offers exclusive sessions and activities for youth and young adults (YYAs), including:

  • A youth orientation and youth-only lunch
  • A youth lounge for young people to recharge and connect with peers
  • Inspiring keynote speakers including New York Times bestselling author Clint Smith; writer, activist, and TED speaker Marlon Peterson; Grammy-nominated musician SaulPaul; and arts curator and activist Malika Whitley
  • Games and a raffle with the chance to win prizes
