Community is one of those things that is hard to define, but you know it when you are in it. A community organization is one that seeks to empower people to guide their lives, to speak for themselves, to learn about the world and to make it better. A TEDxSaltLakeCity Community Ambassador is someone who believes 3 simple truths: 1) people can do it, 2) people can be trained to do it, and 3) conditions can be created to do it. They are leaders, activists, and individuals who support their community in identifying common problems or goals and mobilize resources, including themselves, to solve the problems and attain the goals collectively set by the community.
One of the primary goals of TEDxSaltLakeCity is to build community, as such, we encourage anyone who is taking steps, great or small, to better our community to apply. If you know a community change-maker, you are also invited to nominate an individual.
TEDxSaltLakeCity Community Ambassadors will attend TEDxSaltLakeCity on September 21st free of cost, as well as enjoy other benefits. Our goal is to foster relationships with our Community Ambassadors, speakers, performers, partners, and committee members with the objective of building long-lasting connections. We strongly encourage our Community Ambassadors to attend at least two social events and gain inspiration from other members of the TEDxSaltLakeCity family.
