volunteer highlights

The TEDxToronto team is like a family, with everyone working towards a common goal. Each person is involved in a task that they are passionate about, and together they achieve something special - bringing ideas to an eager audience. In those moments you realize that your efforts have touched someone and made a difference.

Volunteering at TEDx has allowed me to grow my skills further outside my job and meet an amazing group of people who have always supported me and allowed me to grow my ideas and creativity. I have met so many people who have advanced my career already.

Volunteering with TEDxToronto can help improve your connections to our city and provide you with a wealth of new perspectives you hadn't previously considered.

OUR VALUES

1.
Stay Curious. Spread Ideas.

We believe ideas have power to change lives. We are driven to expand our understanding of the world through ideas and we actively participate in their spread.

2.
Strengthen Community.

We work to build and nurture strong communities by connecting people to ideas, and each other. We aim to create local impact in the GTHA.

3.
Welcome diverse perspectives.

We seek voices and ideas that reflect the diversity of the GTHA. We provide spaces where everyone feels welcome and safe, no matter their background or personal opinion.

4.
Have Courage.

We are not afraid to follow the spark of an idea. We share what needs to be heard and we push the boundaries when it matters.

5.
Own it.

We show initiative and see it through. We are accountable to our community and to each other, and we are honest with ourselves on what we can handle.
