About the Event

This event was created by a team of high school students who committed to study Richmond in order to understand who and what makes it great, who has ideas worth spreading, and who is committed to serving the young people of Richmond.

Speakers for TEDxYouth@RVA were not selected by adults, but instead were chosen by the students to share with the local community. 2016’s theme, “What Now?!” challenged us to look forward to the future we are creating for ourselves now, explore the things that will be, and question what should be.
