Welcome to tedx@ya2

Bringing power to youth voice and ideas from around Washtenaw County

who we are & what we do


We are a dynamic and dedicated team of organized, self-managed and hard-working individuals that meet weekly to join their skills to deliver and oversee a one-of-a-kind experience open to anyone in the Ann Arbor community.

At this year's event, around 30 young speakers (high school and middle school) will come together to project their voices, creativity, and expression throughout Ann Arbor, creating a spark of dialogue and empathy in our community. The conference streams live to encourage the widest possible audience. Students have the opportunity to network with one another during intervals that encourage idea sharing through conversation, blogging, tweeting, and play.
