Pickering College - Learning For Life. Creating The Future.
Hands on a globe


Please join us on February 10, 2021 for TEDxYouth@PickeringCollege. The theme for this year's event is Amplify Youth Voices.

With TEDx's motto of, “Ideas worth spreading," the focus for this year's talk provides youth from many different schools the opportunity and platform to have their voices heard. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s event will be completely virtual. There will be six to eight speakers ranging from Grades 9-12, focusing on topics that are personal to them. They will also be talking about how particular occurrences in their lives have shaped them as individuals. The speeches will be engaging, passionate, and personal.

Here are some examples of last year’s speeches:

“Your Winning Ticket” by Shyam Subramanyam

“Female Empowerment in the 21st Century” by Katherine Starr

“Acceptance and Appreciation of Other Cultures” by Kathy Wang
