TEDxUStreetWomen Volunteer Opportunities

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our upcoming event is called TEDxUStreetWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUStreetWomen event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Journey to Your Promised Land, Inc (JTYPL) is a partner and fiscal agent for the TEDxUStreetWomen events. We need a few volunteers for our upcoming TEDx event on April 4, 2022. The following are are needs:
