Celebrating 40 Years

Since 1982, TNOYS’ Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families has brought together thousands of attendees from across systems and around the state.

2023 marks the conference’s 40th anniversary, and we have big plans for a celebration that is better than ever. This year’s theme, Unearth Your Brilliance, will inspire participants to recognize that there is brilliance in resilience and let their skills and expertise shine.

Additionally, on Wednesday, June 14, TNOYS is hosting a special 40th anniversary Gala to celebrate our member network and the stakeholders who make our work possible. Check out the conference FAQs to learn more.

Registration for the conference is open to both professionals and youth and young adults (YYA) who are impacted by systems, allowing them to grow their skills and join in solving community problems.
