About Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 10.59.50

SAVE Foundation’s TED-Ed Clubs are extracurricular clubs which encourage students to stand up and have their voices heard. It offers students a chance to explore topics they’re passionate about, to convert their thoughts into a speech and to then perform it to a live audience. Club members are provided with the materials, tailored to each student’s individual needs, as well as the advice and mentoring they need to succeed.

The club members not only improve their research skills and English comprehension but also their public speaking capabilities. They also learn stress and time management skills, which are vital to their future successes in educational and professional prospects. The club members are given the opportunity to connect with other members of TED-Ed Clubs around the world and to see the global impact of their ideas.

Why TED-Ed Clubs?

The skills and course material covered during the club cycle is not covered in government school curriculums and the students who do not go to school do not receive any training in these skills. Public speaking, interview skills, and English comprehension are all important skills needed to succeed in the working world. So by teaching these to the students through fun and interesting ways, TED-Ed Clubs are allowing students to further succeed in the working world.

TED-Ed clubs represent thousands of students from around the world actively pursuing and presenting their great ideas and stories. As part of this global network, the club members have the opportunity to connect with clubs around the world or with local organizations, broadening their circle of opportunities.



Date: 30th November

Time: 17.30 – 12.00

Location: The Markethall, Grand West Casino

What is the Gala Event?

The club members have been working hard since March through the club curriculum, now that they have written their talks about ‘a story that only they can tell’, we are hosting an event to celebrate their successes. The theme of the evening is ‘Our Lives, Our Future”. This was chosen as throughout the club cycle a continuous theme has been occurring – change. All club members have the drive to create change and some are even acting upon it already. So to continue empowering and encouraging the youth to have their voices heard, the event will be surrounding the theme.
