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!
August is Back to School month and everyone is working hard to get the youth in their lives ready for back to school. But what about the organizations that work hard to serve the youth in their communities? We have a Back to School Checklist ready for them!
The only thing more fun than watching athletes compete on TV is doing it yourself! Looking for a way to get youth in on the action? Get youth in the spirit of things by holding your own 2021 TYAN Youth Summer Olympics!
It’s often assumed that the only way to help youth in foster care is by becoming a foster parent. While this is a noble way to help, it's not the only way. Becoming a mentor to youth is a great way to support and expose them to positive influences.
