Our mission is rooted in the belief that training in speech and debate has power to change the trajectory of a student's life by giving them the tools they need to become effective leaders and change-makers.We believe that a debate-centered curriculum based in constructive civil discourse accelerates student success and career advancement.
Our purpose is to support the teachers, coaches, and program directors who not only promote this invaluable experience but, devote long hours and make continual personal sacrifices on behalf of their students, because they believe in the power of debate.
Debating gives students real-world skills such as critical thinking, oral and written communication, and the ability to organize ideas and present them effectively.
These skills benefit students' academic performance in all subjects and translate later throughout their careers and across all professions.
Our goal is to spread these foundational life skills by both creating educational opportunities in speech and debate and supporting teachers, coaches and program directors to fund and grow their programs.
