TEDxYouth Initiatives

TEDxYouth events happen all year round in schools and in local communities. Once a year, the TEDx community celebrates young people by hosting local events as part of our TEDxYouth Initiative. These events are designed to empower and inspire young people.

TEDxYouth Weekend 2016 is a series of events taking place all around the world November 19 and 20. Find out more about TEDxYouth Weekend 2016.
