what we do

TEDxTeen - Inspiring talks by incredible young people who are changing the world.

What It Is

The Crazy Ones

The Audacity of whY

The Wisdom of Not Knowing

These are just a few themes teens give voice to at TEDxTeen.

TED is devoted to ideas worth spreading. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED's spin-off of local, self-organized events encouraged us to develop TEDxTeen.

TEDxTeen is an annual event in NYC that gives extraordinary teens a place and platform to share their work, tell their stories and inspire others. Bright young minds ask questions, air comments, and spark conversations that spread from one small stage to all corners of the worldwide web via TEDxTeen Talks.

On Saturday, March 1, 2014, the We Are Family Foundation will host the 5th TEDxTeen conference in New York City where we will focus the conversation on teens and their power to change the world. Apply to be a Speaker or Request an Invite to join us live! Stay tuned for more updates on Facebook and Twitter.

"Seeing No Limits"

Born and raised on the big island of Hawaii, Kuha'o Case is the oldest of three children. Incredibly, this 16-year-old prodigy started teaching himself how to play the piano and the organ four short years ago. Thanks to supportive fans, not only was he able to acquire his own piano this past year, but he also realized his dream of releasing his first album, Dare to Dream. As if all of this is not remarkable enough, Kuha'o Case is blind.
