In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, join Youth Service America as we host TEDxCapital – Change the Equation! – A celebration launching Global Youth Service Day, the largest service event in the world.

Why “change the equation?” Because it’s time to expand our thinking around who can meaningfully impact communities. Children and youth are innovative and creative individuals with the ability to offer new ways of solving the world’s most critical problems.

Six dynamic speakers, offering talks that recognize young people as leaders, as change agents, and as innovators, will approach this topic from diverse perspectives including higher education; urban renewal; technology; school based service-learning; global collaboration; and youth activism.
