Teen Sponsorships

Through our sponsorship program, a cohort of teens, ages 13-18, from disadvantaged backgrounds has attended each of the TEDxPasadena conferences since 2016. Your monetary support will allow us to expand the impact on these young adults from attendance at the day-long event to the more significant benefits of a year-long series of engagements with a community of leaders, educators, and other learners. This ongoing curriculum—offered through Words2Action and comprising one-on-one mentoring, community roundtables, and Words2Action Salons—will challenge these young minds and provide opportunities to take significant actions for their future. It will be an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
