TXYB Curation and Program Impacts

We amplify box breaking outsider youth voices. TXYB accelerates audacious youth-driven change(activism, creation, invention, innovation). We weave the generations together to collaboratively create a better tomorrow.

Through our talk discovery and development process we guide our youth to defining their singular mission and purpose, conveying this through meaningful stories, and creating road maps for effecting their desired impact and outcomes locally and globally.

Youth speakers are nominated by educators, youth workers, and increasingly their peers. We offer high-touch talk discovery and development support 1:1 and community for every speaker. Featuring 20 teens(13 to 19) and 5 adult speakers. Livestream, TED quality video production. Amazing cross generational community dedicated to translating ideas into action. Most talks broken out of any program to TED website.

In 2019 nearly 200 speakers will be nominated, 100 will give talk pitches, 50 will be paired with speaker coaches. 20 will give a TEDxYouth talk.
