The mission of Angel Talks is to provide informative speakers on topics relevant to current parenting, education and youth-related issues. The objective is to create a forum for parents to connect and cultivate a caring community of resources. Angel Talks is inspired by the 10-15 minute TED Talk format. The concept is similar; however the events will host one to three speakers to share multiple perspectives followed by a Q&A. The talks are recorded and archived to be available for public viewing.
