TEDxYouth@Salem is the official, independent, locally organized TED youth event for Salem, Oregon.
TEDxYouth@Salem is a half-day event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event theme “Breaking Boundaries” aims to spark discussion and connection. Seven youth speakers will share their “ideas worth spreading” in less than 18 minutes. In addition to speakers, the event include entertainment, TED Talk videos, and a “recess” break.
TED, which stands for technology, entertainment and design, is a national nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Locally, we are overseen by The Moxie Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that also organizes TEDxSalem and TEDxSalemWomen, as well as other community engaging events and activities.
