Greenwich YWCA presents – A new documentary film by Jennifer Siebel Newsome, director of Miss Representation. The Mask You Live In is an exploration of young American masculinity. Compared to girls…research shows that boys in America are more likely to be diagnosed with behavior disorders, prescribed stimulant medications, drop out of school, binge drink, and commit violent crimes or suicide. The question for society is: “Are we failing our boys?”

The Olympic Spirit: Capturing the Moment
Olympic Spirit captures the moments of high drama and emotion experienced by Olympians and fans throughout the world.
What is the truth behind that moment? How do you instill, train, learn, and motivate the champion within? What is the journey behind that moment?
“Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of a good example, and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.” – Olympic Charter
TedxYouth@Bruce will bring together the vision, philosophy, and creed of the Olympic spirit through inspirational speakers.
“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.” – Olympic Creed
