TEDxSanAntonio events wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful volunteers
The Organizers are looking for dedicated individuals to help make TEDxSanAntonio events happen. We need people with great organizational skills, attention to detail, and a variety of marketing, technical, event planning/logistics, and fundraising experience.
TEDx events tackle our toughest questions and spark ideas, innovation, enterprise, and enduring optimism. It’s our goal to share ideas that inspire people to change their lives, their communities, and ultimately, our world. Every year, we hear from people who have been positively affected by TED and TEDx, whose lives have been bettered by access to a broad palette of ideas, created businesses and business partnerships, and have been inspired to create a better life for others.
As a TEDxSanAntonio volunteer, you’ll be part of this amazing community. Our crew is the magic behind the scenes making everything work. Apply today to see how you can help bring big ideas to life.Apply to Volunteer
