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.

  • The conference will once again engage hundreds of professionals who work across housing and homelessness services, child welfare, education, juvenile justice, health and behavioral health, CSEY/survivor services, and workforce/higher education.
  • The in-person conference features over 40 workshops and a dynamic lineup of keynote speakers, and the virtual day features 12 workshop options.
  • Additionally, TNOYS is hosting a special Gala reception to celebrate our member network and the stakeholders who have made our work possible over 40 years.
