In-Person Town Hall Series for Youth, Young Adults, and Professionals

YYA and stakeholders will have the opportunity to learn from each other about the needs of system-impacted YYA and changes that can better promote their health and well-being. These insights will help guide TNOYS’ cross-systems youth policy agenda for the upcoming 89th Texas Legislative Session, as well as local recommendations to better support youth.

Are you based in one of the communities below? We strongly encourage you to register professionals and YYA partners! We hope to convene attendees across systems, including those with lived and/or professional experience in areas such as foster care, prevention, juvenile justice, housing and homelessness services, survivor services, education, and YYA workforce opportunities.
