It Takes a Village

Next week, on Saturday, April 20th, the TEDxBoise team of dedicated volunteers showcase their efforts to educate and entertain the Treasure Valley. TEDxBoise’s 5th annual event will exhibit more than a dozen local speakers, entertainers and artists with extraordinary insights to share toward this year’s “take flight” theme. The exceptional volunteers and partners who generously donate their support in various ways enhance and execute this all-day event that will take place at JUMP.

Organizing an event on the scale and of the quality of TEDxBoise requires the support of 25 volunteers and more than 3,000 hours of hard work. Each member of the team has a specific role, in which they incorporate their profession, talents and passion. Our core team leadership roles require higher level of year-round involvement, where the commitment is few hours each week until mid-winter and increases to 10-15 hours a week as the event approaches. We’ve introduced a few of our fine folks here, here and here, and we’ll do our best to add more profiles of our team through the summer.

This week is National Volunteer Week, which celebrates the impact of service and the power of folks who lend their time and talents to make a difference in our community. Please continue the celebration at our event by thanking your favorite volunteer at the show. And you can only give your thank yous if you’re at the show, so if you haven’t already, buy your tickets soon! We’re almost sold out!
