TEDxTeen 2013


Chelsea Clinton

More than 300 teenagers and adults in the youth space gathered for TEDxTeen 2013, an independently organized conference presented by the We Are Family Foundation, that focused the conversation on teens and their power to change the world, hosted by Chelsea Clinton on Saturday, March 16, 2013, at Scholastic's global world headquarters in New York City. Andrew Jenks, creator of MTV’s World of Jenks and author of “Andrew Jenks: My Adventures as a Young Filmmaker,” joined in to host TEDxTeen 2013’s online global audience at, where people from 141 countries tuned in to experience the conference streaming live.

The theme of the fourth annual TEDxTeen conference, “The Audacity of whY,” resonates with Generation Y – or more appropriately, “Generation Why?” – as they turn over established regimes, age-old thinking, and timeless truths, through social media, the power of crowds and an unswerving belief that they have the right to know “why?”.

In addition to Chelsea Clinton and Andrew Jenks, TEDxTeen 2013 featured a number of speakers and performers who are each leading the global “whY” revolution in their own way, including Amaryllis Fox, Founder & CEO of mulu; Caine Monroy, creator of Caine's Arcade; Dylan Vecchione, Founder of ReefQuest; photographer Joseph Peter; Global Minimum Innovate Salone 2012 winner Kelvin Doe; Kristopher Bronner, co-creator of UNREAL™ Brands; musical prodigy Kuha'o Case; Ndaba Mandela, grandson of Nelson Mandela and co-founder & co-chairman of the Africa Rising Foundation; Sophie Umazi, creator of I AM KENYAN; R&B/Soul Singer Tallia Storm; Tania Luna, CEO of Surprise Industries; and Maria Toorpakai Wazir, Pakistan's No. 1-ranked women's squash player.

TEDxTeen 2013 Talks will begin to go live on on Saturday, March 23, 2013. One talk will be released each day until all Talks are online.

Chelsea Clinton: In the Arena

The conversation began with host Chelsea Clinton’s talk, during which the former first daughter expressed her belief in the power of Generation Y to change the world. Clinton addressed the teens in the audience, telling them that their ideas are worth spreading and that they must find a way to make their voices heard in order to incite change.

“If you have the opportunity and the means to do something, you should do it. When there is something you want to accomplish, even if you don’t have the opportunity and means, you should make it for yourself. Engaging in the work of the world is hard but it’s the best kind of work,” Clinton encouraged the audience. “As we say in my family, it’s always better to get caught trying.”

Caine Monroy: Outside the Box

The next and youngest speaker at TEDxTeen 2013, Caine Monroy, was just 9 years old when he created “Caine's Arcade,” which became the subject of a documentary by filmmaker Nirvan Mullick. Monroy formed his arcade with a large amount of cardboard and a soaring imagination, by designing games, creating customer passes and even prizes. Mullick's film has received over 7 million views, along with 120,000 Facebook fans. Monroy has inspired more than 100 schools in 9 different countries to create their own cardboard arcades. Monroy’s talk focused on thinking “Outside the Box,” as his story proves that a child's imagination is limitless. With persistence and creativity, Caine Monroy managed to change not only his local community, but communities around the globe.
