Get Involved


City Councilman Kwanza Hall has challenged us all to get involved. Join the TEDxAtlanta community in one (or both!) of the following ways:

Summer Internship Program:

A summer internship can change the course of a young person’s life. Can you offer a Boulevard teen an opportunity to get hands-on experience in the “real world?” For more information on the YO Boulevard Summer Internship Program, contact Heather Rocker.

Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program:

We can open the eyes of young people to the myriad opportunities that they can create for themselves by starting their own businesses. One-on-one mentoring on the many ways to become an entrepreneur is a profound way to make a big impact. To get involved in the YO Boulevard Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program, contact Adam Harrell.
