Video: Noah From Hope Partnership Speaks at TEDxSalem

Noah Schultz is a 23 year old poet, writer and aspiring entrepreneur. Incarcerated at the age of 17 under Oregon’s Measure 11, Noah has been part of our Hope Partnership program for over five years. 

He’s participated in almost every personal and professional development group the program offers, using his time in the custody of the Oregon Youth Authority as an opportunity rather than hindrance.

Noah’s TEDx Talk addresses the event’s theme ‘Be Fearless’.

“My talk is an infusion of poetry, my life story and the wisdom I have learned from the experience of being incarcerated at an early age. I want people to walk away from this talk ready to take on the thing they have pushed to the side. Humans are meant to persist, survive and reach unimaginable levels of excellence. I hope this talk stokes the inner fire inside of them,” said Schultz

TED is a non­profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives. At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less.

In the same spirit, TEDx events are local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where the x indicates an independently organized TED event.
