A group of passionate, young, motivated and curious students at Wellspring Learning Community came together with a teacher to organize TEDxYouth@WellspringLC: the first TEDxYouth event to take place at a local school in Lebanon, organized by and for the youth.

On May 10th, students, parents, teachers, staff, friends and families gathered to walk a mile in the shoes of our 13 young speakers and performers, who shared their stories of struggle and ideas for change on different topics that will take you on a journey to see the world through their eyes...

TEDx events are immersive experiences. During the break, attendees interacted with robots, crafts, architecture tools and lounged with snacks listening to spoken word poetry by a group of students aged 11 - 18.
