2024 Annual Conference

Now in its 41st year, TNOYS’ Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families is a flagship training event for youth-serving professionals from across Texas. This June 4-7, join us in Houston for an energizing week of new connections, inspirational speakers, and cutting-edge training led by experts and young people with lived experience.

TNOYS’ conference draws professionals from across systems that serve young people. Learn more about the event and who you’ll meet.

Share Your Expertise As a Presenter

As a presenter, you’ll connect with hundreds of youth-serving professionals and youth leaders. We welcome proposals across every area of youth services, including research and evidence-based practices, youth voice and youth-adult partnership, nonprofit leadership and innovative solutions, and more.

Hurry, the call for proposals closes in early January!

A driving value of TNOYS’ conference is youth-adult partnership, and we will prioritize workshop proposals that include youth and young adults (ages 15-26) as presenters. Presenter benefits include conference registration discounts and free registration for all youth and young adult presenters. If you have questions, please email us at annualconference@tnoys.org. Rolling deadline: January 8.

TNOYS’ Annual Conference would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors. These partners showcase their brand to key audiences in youth and family services, enjoy complimentary registrations, connect 1-on-1 with our diverse audience, and much more.

We invite you to join us for our 41st conference year and support TNOYS’ work for youth and families. Applications are open through April 19, 2024. Check out the various sponsorship tiers and exhibiting opportunities in the benefits packet!

If you’re interested in creating something special to support the conference or would like to speak further about this opportunity, please reach out to Tessa Ammons, Outreach Manager, at annualconference@tnoys.org or 512-815-3299.
