Youth voice and youth-driven care are core values of System of Care. Youth are full partners in all aspects of the planning and delivery of their own services and in the policies and procedures that govern care for all children and youth in their community, state, territory, tribe and nation.

The Texas System of Care is currently working with Allies Cultivating Change by Empowering Positive Transformation (ACCEPT). ACCEPT is a cross-system group of youth and young adults from throughout the state that work together for system transformation by supporting partnerships between, youth, young adults, and organizations. Members use their lived experience in these systems and that of their peers to help inform and drive system improvements. We also offer training and consultation to various youth-serving agencies and systems throughout the state on the importance of including youth voice and how to do so in meaningful, authentic ways.
