Trustworthiness. Respect. Responsibility. Fairness. Caring. Citizenship.

While support from parents, teachers, coaches, and many others can help kids find the path to living with good character, in the end it is up to each person to choose their path. Kids growing up in St. Louis are lucky, though; we’re in a place where amazing character abounds. With this in mind, TEDxGatewayArch Youth is pleased to present a very special event bringing together some thoughtful presenters, performances and messages focused on character.
