Become a Volunteer
Everything we do is made possible by a group of talented individuals from all walks of life who come together every year to help share ideas worth spreading in our community and beyond.
Ready to help spread
the world’s greatest ideas?
"The TEDxPearlStreet team is like a family, with everyone working towards a common goal. Each person is involved in a task that they are passionate about, and together they achieve something special - bringing ideas to an eager audience. In those moments you realize that your efforts have touched someone and made a difference."
Make An Impact
We have a unique chance to drive real, local impact and build a better city through the power of ideas. To this end, we are building programs and tools that allow ideas to flourish.
Learn & Grow
We challenge ourselves in new ways, and build practical skills to grow in our careers and beyond. We are building a community of dreamers and doers that offers inspiration to lift each other up.
Build Your Network
We are building meaningful and lasting connections as we work and play alongside amazing creators and ideators from different personal & professional backgrounds.
Why Join Our Team?
Our Core Values
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world; and and we actively participate in their spread.
We seek voices and ideas that reflect the diversity of Washington DC, and we provide safe spaces no matter their background or personal opinion.
We work to build and nurture strong communities by connecting people to ideas, and each other. We aim to create an impact in Washington DC.
We are expanding our understanding of the world through ideas, and are
actively participating in their spread to make them more accessible.
We are not afraid to ignite the spark of an idea. We share what needs to be heard and we push the boundaries when it matters.
We show initiative and we are accountable to our community and to each other, and we are honest with ourselves on what we can handle.
