TEDx is an open-source community of events that inspire innovation,

thought leadership, and visionary insights.

Our TEDx event is independently organized by a city-wide group of

motivated high school students.

We are not hosting a TEDx event for political reasons, monetary reward or personal gain.

We are doing this because we truly believe in the power of 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) organization. Donations are tax deductible.
