Do you enjoy empowering youth to have an impact on their communities? Do you enjoy working with young people? Have you ever wanted to get involved with TED and help run an event? Would like to all of this while growing your skills and expanding your network?

If you answered yes to any of these questions we’d love to have you join the TEDxYouth@Toronto team. We are looking for passionate, motivated individuals to play a part in planning, organizing, and running our annual event this November!

We are always overwhelmed by the responses from high school students interested in helping out with our event. However, we are targeting applicants who have graduated from high school with the opportunities below. If you’re in high school and would like to help out, check back in April for our Youth Ambassador Program applications.

About the Team

At TEDxYouth@Toronto we believe that positive change in the world comes from empowered youth. To inspire youth, our volunteers are expected to lead by example: with a demonstrated commitment to the organization, a get-it-done attitude, and a feeling of self empowerment.

Working on the TEDxYouth@Toronto team is lots of fun, but it is a serious commitment as well. We anticipate that each team member will put in an average of 3 hours of work a week (though this will vary throughout the year). If you are committed to being an active volunteer, working collaboratively, and excited about the prospect of helping youth unlock their potential then you’ve come to the right place!
