En el corazón de TEDxUMSA, nos esforzamos por cultivar líderes extraordinarios. Queremos que cada voluntario viva una experiencia enriquecedora, sumergiéndose en capacitaciones que no solo potencian habilidades, sino que también encienden la llama de la pasión. Aquí, el crecimiento personal se convierte en un viaje emocionante y transformador.
