Another way to partner with TEDxYouth Seattle is to host a salon. Check out our 2021 financial literacy salon as an idea of what can be possible.


We have a number of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. The time commitment required to volunteer varies widely. We have 3 primary types of volunteer positions.

Day-of-Event Volunteers – This is a single, full-day commitment for one of our events (TEDxYouth Seattle, TEDxSeattleWomen, or TEDxSeattle).

Core Team Volunteers – Our Core Team works tirelessly around the year to plan our events. These roles are a multi-year commitment and generally require 10+ hours per week to fulfill.

Extended Core Team Volunteers – Each Core Team leader will generally have a team of Extended Core Team volunteers. As an example, our Marketing team will have Head of Marketing, which is a Core Team role, and about 5-10 Extended Core Team members to help with various aspects of marketing, such as copywriting, web design, social, etc. Extended Core Team roles are usually a year-round commitment and require about 5-10 hours per week.

If you are interested in volunteering, check out our available volunteer opportunities and we’ll try to match you to the right role!
