Texas Youth-Friendly Initiative (TYFI)

For more information, please contact Elaine at elaine@txcampaign.org

Check out our brand new TYFI website with tools and resources to help Texas health professionals transform care delivery and the health care experience for youth across the state!

The Texas Campaign is leading the Texas Youth-Friendly Initiative (TYFI), a pilot project that helps build capacity for exceptional service delivery to youth ages 10-24.  TYFI brings clinics together to form an innovative community of practice through participation in an evidence-based model developed by the University of Michigan Adolescent Health Initiative.  The Adolescent Champion Model is an 18-month multi-faceted intervention that addresses a health center’s environment, policies, and practices to ensure that all aspects of a visit to the health center are youth-centered.

Together, we are working to improve adolescent health care in Texas!
