TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet is an independently organized community event licensed by TED. Like One Bead, TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet is committed to amplifying youth voices worldwide, accelerating youth-driven change, and activating collaboration across generations. After volunteering as speaker coaches in 2017 and seeing the event as an opportunity to engage program alumni, One Bead joined the TEDxYouth leadership team in 2018.

Our alumni matter to us. They are both voices of their generations and mentors for youth leaders in the making. Read more about our partnership with TEDxYouth@Beaconstreet below and listen to our Youth Speakers talk about the ways in which they are continuing to catalyze change in their communities.
In 2018, our organization was lucky enough to join the TEDxYouth @BeaconStreet leadership team. We used our program partners to source 300% more Youth Speaker nominations than ever before. On November 10, 2018, 18 students took the stage and bravely shared their stories with the world. While our team worked 1:1 with the five featured Speakers below, we grew close with all 18 after many a late-night week-day rehearsals. We hope you enjoy their stories as much as we do!
This year we were partnered with TEDxBeaconStreet to coach seven TEDxYouth speakers. Each speaker taught us something new and left us inspired beyond belief. We are grateful to the team at TEDxBeaconStreet for giving us this opportunity and for providing a platform for students worldwide to share their stories.
