Who speaks at EDGE?

EDGE features a variety of speakers, from motivational speakers, to community leaders, to panels of professionals in the non-profit sector.  We have a new Speaker Bio page about all of our wonderful speakers, check it out here!  It is important to note that EDGE does not take sides on politics or religion, and none of our speakers push a religious or political agenda on the students.  The speakers' aim is to teach, empower and motivate the students to become leaders in their local communities and in the world.
