Mission Statement

TNOYS' mission is to promote excellence in youth service organizations through support, training and advocacy.

Description

TNOYS is a nonprofit organization that has been in existence for over 26 years. Our primary target audience is youth that are considered to be "at-risk." this entails things such as:

youth that have run away from unsafe and abusive homes or where they have been told that they need to leave.

youth that live in environments which put them at-risk for poor decision making and therefore poor outcomes such as delinquency and dropping out of school.

youth who are living in the foster care system with no permenant home who often lack a consistent education and skills to live as "adults" once they turn 18.

We serve these youth in a variety of ways including but not limited to:

- providing cutting edge professional training and consultation to agencies that serve at-risk youth

-by offering adventure camps for youth in the foster care system

-by offering annual Teen Summits to 90 "at-risk" youth from accross Texas

-by providing youth arts programming to provide opportunities and outlets for youth's creativity and talent

-by advocating for legislation to assist these young people in recieving what they need to reach their optimal level of development
