TEDxYouth@Vail – Impact



TEDxYouth@Vail – Impact –  Where radically real ideas are delivered by youth and prominent figures in our valley. This event, organized solely by the valley’s youth, boasts ideas worth sharing that will open your mind to intimate revelations, brilliant creativity, and deep data. You’ll find live speakers, hands-on activities, hand-picked TED Talks and fascinating conversations with ecologists, community activists, mental-health survivors, advocates, performers and more! Nine speakers will share short talks in two sessions on how they “Impact” their community, serving both as a source of knowledge and inspiration for youth in the Vail Valley. 

Session 1: Spearheads

Meet our spearheads. Individuals who do not simply observe, but are leaders who advocate for a brighter and more vivid future. This session’s speakers will step out of their comfort zones to encourage you to step out of yours. They will show you that words do not only inspire, but when chosen correctly, can bring about impact on others. Through first hand experiences and episodes of vulnerability, they will convey to you matters near and dear to their hearts. They have chosen this opportunity to open up and make a positive impact on others, but the real question isー are you aware of your impact?

Session 2: Trailblazers

Meet our trailblazers. Individuals who do not go where the path may lead, but choose to make their own trail through the unknown. You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both. Through passion and bravery, these speakers prove that being courageous and standing up for what you believe in, can make an impact. After digging into their innermost thoughts and putting them on paper, their talks will encourage you to bring about uncomfortable conversations that evoke change. So get comfortable, because the impact of these talks may make you uncomfortable.
