TNOYS Lived Experience Index
This section is to gauge which systems you have involvement in and are willing to discuss in our Youth Voices activities. If you do not feel comfortable sharing about an experience, do not feel obligated to share. If you decide later on that you would like to share about this experience, please let a TNOYS staff member know at the listening session. You will never be forced to share something against your will and you can always say no to an opportunity or change your mind.
