TEDx is an open-source community of events that inspire innovation, thought leadership, and visionary insights.
2016 is the third annual event where Youth Voice contributes to and influences the future of Ann Arbor. The intention is that each year high school aged students will share their ideas, vision and innovation with the wider community.
Our TEDx event is independently organized by a city-wide group of motivated high school student leaders.
We are not hosting a TEDx event for political reasons, monetary reward or personal gain. Rather, we are doing this because we truly believe in the power of youth ideas to change our world.
We believe in the efficacy of Youth Voice for powerful growth and change in Ann Arbor.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
What is TEDx: ideas worth spreading
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx , a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxYouth@AnnArbor, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@AnnArbor event, TED Talks, videos, live speakers and performers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection about our city and our future in a small group setting.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
