TEDxGunnHighSchool-Clint Wilkins-The Heroic Imagination

Clint Wilkins, the director of education for the Heroic Imagination Project, has spent his entire adult life working with teenagers as a teacher, coach, counselor, school principal and a social entrepreneur in both public and independent schools. The mission of his organization, founded by Dr. Philip Zimbardo , professor emeritus of psychology at Stanford University, is "to teach individuals to stand up, speak out and act with moral courage when the situation demands"- in other words, to become everyday heroes.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
