The Student Equity Action Network (SEAN) is hosting a TedxYouthPaloAlto student conference on November 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 650 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto. The all youth conference is organized and presented by students, with a variety of backgrounds, and is limited to 100 attendees. The “X” in the name TedxYouth Palo Alto means that this in an independently organized event.
The theme of the conference is empowerment through education. Students, some in groups known as the “teen team,” and adults in the field will present information to attendees on a variety of topics. Students attending the conference will be asked to use the information they receive to help bring their own ideas out into the community and into their lives.
Palo Alto Unified School District Superintendent, Kevin Skelly will welcome youth to the events. They will then hear from speakers and participate in three interactive sessions before attending a networking luncheon. Themes for the three sessions are, Speak Your Truth, Know Thy Way, and Make a Difference. The theme of the luncheon is Ideas Worth Spreading.
