TEDxYouth@Austin is organized and produced by a dedicated team of youth leaders with key oversight from experienced adult mentors. Unlike most other youth events, TEDxYouth@Austin brings together students from all demographics in a non-competitive atmosphere. Our event is both one of the first and largest TEDxYouth events in the world, and we continue to grow each year. Attendance to TEDxYouth@Austin is completely free, and in exhange, our attendees commit to 4 hours of community service. We believe that our event has the ability to change the way today's youth- the leaders of tomorrow- engage with the world around them.
Our attendees hail from 80 different schools from the Central Texas Area, all traveling to our hometown of Austin for our unique experience.
TEDxYouth@Austin attracts around 1,000 attendees each year. We have seen nothing but growth since our first event!
Our campus ambassadors represent the TEDxYouth@Austin team in middle and high schools all over the Central Texas Area.
America is not like a blanket- one piece of unbroken cloth. America is more like a quilt- many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes, all woven together by a common thread.
