TEDxStJohns Presents TEDxYouth@StJohns

TEDxStJohns is proud to present TEDxYouth@StJohns, the first youth-oriented TEDx event in the province. Designed for youth aged 12-18, the event is poised to inspire curiosity, ignite new ideas, and empower young leaders through the mission of TED: ideas worth spreading.

TEDxStJohns has been a growing community organization since its first event held in 2012. Over the years we have reached and inspired hundreds of curious minds across the city. To celebrate our 5-year milestone, we want to grow that reach and bring the power of new ideas to the bright young minds of St. John’s.

We want to make TEDxYouth StJohns as big of a success as our live TEDxStJohns event. So for 2016 our dedicated team of organizers will be putting all their efforts towards building this new platform geared toward this brand new audience. We are excited to foster youth leadership through coaching and training to develop skillsets which can be transitioned into TEDxStJohns events in the years to come.

We will be celebrating the ideas of our young leaders at the first TEDxYouth@StJohns event on May 12th, 2016 with a full audience of youth aged 12-18! Stay tuned for more updates on TEDxStJohns.com, Facebook, or Twitter.
