Do you know TED?

TED is all about 'ideas worth spreading' and does so through the TED Conferences and TED.com. Each year, thousands of people attend TED events and TED Talks attract millions of viewers worldwide.

The TED Fellows program is designed to invite young world-changers and trailblazers who have shown unusual accomplishment and exceptional courage into the TED community.

TED Fellows are drawn from many disciplines that reflect the diversity of TED's members: technology, entertainment, design, the sciences, the humanities, the arts, NGOs, business, and more. The program includes individuals from Asia/Pacific region, Africa, the Caribbean, The Americas, Europe, and the Middle East.

The SupporTED program was created to provide personal, professional coaching and mentoring to the TED Fellows to help amplify the impact of their projects and activities. This is your opportunity to be part of the SupporTED team. If you are interested in offering pro bono mentoring services to a TED Fellow, please follow these steps:

  • Determine if you are willing to contribute a minimum of 10 sessions of mentoring 
  • Read the SupporTED Mentors FAQ
  • Submit the SupporTED Mentor Application
  • Respond promptly when contacted by the SupporTED team for additional info, screening or a potential match
  • Provide your gift of mentoring to a TED Fellow!

Please visit TED.com and meet some of the TED Fellows who are already part of the program. Do join the TED community online - it's free.  If you are not already a fan of the TED Talks, we encourage you to spend some time online with the most extraordinary array of speakers you'll ever see.  Thanks for considering SupporTED as your place of service as a professional mentor.
