Join us for specialized training on the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and the opportunity to earn approximately 11 CEUs, develop new skills, network, and engage with other education professionals from across Texas!
Last year’s summit welcomed over 1,000 education professionals from over 400 school districts across Texas, empowering new connections across the state. Read about last year’s summit on our blog post, Exploring the Road to Impact During TEHCY 2021.

The YALC is a paid leadership development program for youth and young adults ages 16 to 25 with lived experiences in homelessness and other areas such as foster care and juvenile justice system involvement.
