The TED-Ed Clubs program supports students in discovering, exploring, and presenting their big ideas in the form of short, TED-style talks. The program is a global network of passionate youth with ideas worth sharing. When they join TED-Ed Clubs, students will be joining more than 3,000 clubs in 115 countries. In TED-Ed Clubs, students work together to discuss and celebrate creative ideas. Club leaders receive TED-Ed’s flexible Clubs curriculum to guide their school’s club and to help inspire tomorrow’s TED speakers and leaders. The first part of the Clubs curriculum has members explore the ideas they’re passionate about. By diving into activities that expand curiosity, club members identify and discuss what matters most to them. As members journey through the TED-ED Clubs curriculum, they are challenged to identify and shape their own story. Through guided brainstorms and active peer feedback exercises, members craft their own TED-style talk. At the end of the cycle, members record their talk and upload it to the TED-Ed Clubs YouTube channel, where they can share their talk with family members, friends, communities, and the world. TED-Ed Clubs are designed to support students aged 8–18 all over the world. Anyone over the age of 13 can submit an application to start a club.
