TedxYouth is an independently hosted Ted Talk event featuring local high school students. Located conveniently at Temecula Valley High School’s theatre, our one day speaking event offers students the opportunity to speak amongst distinguished citizens and peers.
TedxYouth is fundraising on behalf of Great Oak High School’s IBAP Organization. IBAP aims to create a healthy supportive school environment with an academic environment that devalues competition and emphasizes mutual support and understanding and makes advanced classes accessible and appealing to all students. The money made from the event will be distributed as scholarships for students in need of financial assistance when paying for their exams. Our production will raise funds for our high school's high achievers to offer scholarships to those taking Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate Program exams. We want to stress opportunity because we know not every student can afford these exams to earn college credit as many students do not have the proper outlets for public speaking and want to help host an event to tackle both.
