ACCEPT (Allies Cultivating Change by Empowering Positive Transformation) is a cross-system group of youth and young adults ages 13-25 from across Texas who 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 include youth voice and how to do so in meaningful, authentic ways.
