PRE-EVENT DESCRIPTION
The TEDxYouth@SanDiego team is honored to welcome students from twenty San Diego County high schools to participate in this global event. It should be a transformative day for all of our student attendees. To see the kind of impact we hope to make please watch our short video at www.tedxyouthday.com.

The theme of TEDxYouth@SanDiego is "The World in Our Grasp," and it is all about inspiring one to see a problem, to take responsibility and to do something now.

We are paying it forward. This event is not just about Canyon Crest Academy‚ it's about others. Next fall we will be bringing a community of 400 students together from all over San Diego County to challenge them, inspire them, and motivate them to be agents of change.
This is NOT just a conference or an inspirational day of talks. Student participants will be asked to make commitments to take action within their community by the end of the day, and we will follow-through on those commitments by reconnecting with our student-attendees throughout the year to ensure they are progressing with their promises.
TEDxYouth is solution-oriented. The attendees will be given specific ways in which they can become involved no matter what their resources and where they are located. We want them to make promises they can keep, and we will help them succeed by reconnecting them with their peers and mentors throughout the year, so their plans are put into action.
