Tennesseans 16+: Now Eligible for a COVID-19 Vaccine


Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth Has a New Look

For the past four decades the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth has advocated to improve the well-being of all children and youth across the state of Tennessee. As we look forward, we plan to continue that legacy with a newly refined purpose featuring an updated look, mission, and vision.

Our new logo represents all of who we are as an agency. The bars represent children and youth of all ages and colors and the agencies that work to create change for the betterment of children and youth in Tennessee. The thread that connects them all represents TCCY.

We were inspired by our agency’s work through the Council on Children’s Mental Health, Youth Transitions Advisory Council, KIDS COUNT, and Regional Councils. Additionally, from the Home Visiting Leadership Alliance, Building Strong Brains, Young Child Wellness Council, Second Look Commission and Ombudsman, our advocacy efforts are ever-growing and diversifying. Like the musical-like movement seen in the logo, we will continue to move forward and adapt using data and research as our guide. 

Our new mission; we lead systems improvement for all children and families through data-driven advocacy, education, and collaboration.

Our new vision; we strive to become the premier leader in children and youth systems improvement through innovative and transformative approaches and practices.

We believe this new mission and vision captures the goals and priorities of the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth. We will continue to advocate, educate, and collaborate for the betterment of children and families in Tennessee. We are excited to move forward into this new era and hope you will join our efforts to improve the lives of Tennessee’s children and youth through systems improvement.
