The Age of Amazement

About Us

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED- like experience. At a TEDx event,  live speakers spark deep discussion and connection in a dynamic and engaged group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

TEDxYouth@Vaughan  2013


At the  TEDxYouth@Vaughan in 2013, our speakers shared short lessons on what they do best. They dazzled us with mind-shifting stories, inspired us with creativity and made us want to dive even deeper into a broad array of topics. The program was made up of tow sessions, plus a lunch break with activities, demos, and a chance to meet the speakers. Attendance was free of charge for 150 ​ middle and high school students from the Greater Toronto Area area.

TEDxYouth@Vaughan  2014


What a success! The Vaughan TEDx Community has now enjoyed our second TEDxYouth@Vaughan since the “Birth” of our Chapter, and the events are getting rave reviews. I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to speakers, volunteers and participants for your commitment to making this event a successful, timeless, story to be told over and over again. We envisioned a day of entertaining and outstanding stories and thanks to your support that vision becomes a reality.

TEDxYouth@Vaughan  2015


On November 16, 2015, young people gathered to explore the event’s theme: “Made in the Future”. This theme provided youth with new perspectives ​on their own future job possibilities beyond traditional careers, some of which may not yet exist. TEDYouth 2015 was an opportunity for youth to think about the world in 2035, and to engage with experts who consider the
corners of our intangible imagination to be the foundation for our potential future reality.
