TEDxGatewayArch knows that young people of different backgrounds and perspectives will become St. Louis' future business and community leaders.  Your passions, energy, and ideas are a critical part of Ripple Effect and we strongly believe that cost should not be an obstacle to participation.  

Our Young Innovators Fellowship Program provides 50 deserving youth in the St. Louis region with the opportunity to attend Ripple Effect free of charge.  We’re looking for talented, creative and visionary individuals interested in informing the conversation and spreading the sparks ignited at the event throughout our region.
