TEDxYouthWrigleyville is an independently organized day-long TED event, operated under an exclusive license from TED worldwide. This inaugural, landmark event will be coming to Chicago on August 4th, 2019 at the Center on Halsted. The centralized theme of the event will be “Youth, American Style” and will focus on exploring various aspects of youth identity.
Our mission is to build a network of leaders who seek to broaden their understanding of self, culture and the world, for themselves and generations of Chicagoans to come. Presenters will share tips and tools to foster resilience and create a safe and successful future. We’re connecting promising high school graduates–many of whom are first generation college students–with local professionals who can inspire our future leaders with integrity, intention and purpose.
