Oklahoma State University alumna Alyssa Peterson went to South Africa for a three-month mission trip and ended up staying for a year and a half, co-founding an after school program called Ubuntu Youth. She shares what she’s learned about truly helping people.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
