The Texas Youth Action Network (TYAN) uses the Positive Youth Development theory to help organizations strengthen their abilities to build Youth-Adult Partnerships (YAPs) and integrate youth voices in decision-making. We hope to help empower youth all over Texas!
Organizations interested in starting or expanding their youth-adult partnerships can apply to be a Community Partner. As a Community Partner, organizations can access to exclusive materials, technical support, funding, and more!

TYAN has created a short list that we coined our “dictionary” to help you understand the lingo used when talking about YAPs.

Many organizations are in the transition phase to normal operations in the aftermath of working remotely. We know the stress of readjusting back to face-to-face life all too well, so we made a list of do’s and don’ts you can follow for guidance, along with a checklist you can use to prepare for your conference.
